Who the fuck are Palma Violets? This past fall, the London four-piece roared out of nowhere, dripping with snot and sincerity on their shout-y first single “Best of Friends.” The tune is an instant classic, sprung from the same gnarly tree that gave us The Clash and The Libertines. This full-length proves that they’re no one-hit wonder, demonstrating depth, dexterity and a slap-dash genius that’s impossible to contrive. Meet your new favorite band.
