The boisterous prodigal son of alt-rock, Palmar Arch (Robert James), is on bruisingly impactful form with his single, Sunscript, due for official release on February 17th.
Previously operating under the moniker Superbloom and operating as a full band, Palmar Arch has relaunched the project as a solo endeavour and proven that he is a powerhouse of high-octane ingenuity standing alone in the process.
With hints of pop-punk biting from behind the hard-hitting rock elements that always leave room for melodic hooks between the grungy riffs through the angular melodicism, Sunscript is enough to allow you to imagine what the Foo Fighters would sound like if they kept hold of their virtuosic talent and picked up some contemporary cool.
Between the lack of obvious influence, the adrenalized production and the sheer immensity, Palmar Arch is one to beat.
