Palm Ghosts - “Pulse” & “Up the Down Escalator” (Sweet Cheetah/Poptek/TWLOHA)

Palm Ghosts
25 April 2024

“Pulse,” the fourth single from the Escape EP, offers another taste of what Nashville’s Palm Ghosts are planning for Facades, a double LP due later this year. The Escape EP sees release on May 10 and can be pre-saved here.

Palm Ghosts bassist/vocalist Joseph Lekkas says, “‘Pulse’ is about a young couple letting loose together in a bustling city.”

The single precedes a rigorous 2024 touring schedule. Dates here.

In mid-March, Palm Ghosts began releasing a series of songs and videos, one at a time, every two weeks, that will end up populating four EPs and ultimately a double LP (for Sweet Cheetah Records/Poptek Records) by the end of the year.

The double LP, called Facades, will feature 20 songs that mix genres and moods like no other release in Palm Ghost’s large catalog. The songs will explore topics like religion, cults, love, loss and survival in the modern age. Some with beautiful melodies, some dark and brooding, but 100 percent Palm Ghosts.

The EPs and double LP will have original artwork by the talented Unexpected Specter, who does all of the band’s merch designs.

On April 26, the band also releases their second Sweet Cheetah Publicity Cover For A Cause, a cover of The Chameleon’s “Up The Down Escalator.”

According to the band they are huge fans of The Chameleons and always wanted to cover this song. All proceeds to the track will go to To Write Love on Her Arms, a nonprofit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and invest directly into treatment and recovery.
