Coachella Pocket Guide: The Neighbourhood, Jake Bugg and Palma Violets
By Staff on April 8, 2013
It's nearly time to escape into the desert and enjoy everything that Coachella Music Festival has to offer! With the amazing headliners and all the great bands that top the bill, it's sometimes easy to overlook those bands in the fine print that fill the beginning of the day. Well that's why we've put together the Coachella Pocket Guide series to help you figure out what acts to see as you try and find refuge from the California sun!
This Edition: Friday featuring The Neighbourhood, Jake Bugg and Palma Violets!
This Los Angeles quintet have found the perfect balance between dark rock and a dash of hip hop in a way that creates some great songs. Each one of their tracks holds a certain yearning and emotion but in a way that's catchy enough that you want to sing along to each one of their lyrics. Just listen for yourself with their track "Sweater Weather" below!
Ever since this British singer/songwriter was introduced in 2011 at the age of 17, he has gotten plenty of recognition in his home country. Jake Bugg maintains a solid folk sound while adding elements of contemporary rock in a way that is refreshing and new. His songs are catchy and perfect for swaying, clapping and singing to early in the day! Listen to his track "Two Fingers" below!
Palma Violets jumped right into the scene in a big way and we were not disappointed. Their sound holds that bit of inspiration from The Clash, but in a way that is entirely their own. Each song is pure classic rock and we are certain that their live performance will only awe us even more. You can get a hint of what you can expect from them in their video for "Best of Friends."
