London trio Black Palms have just released their debut single ‘Turned To Ash’, and it goes like this …

The band say:

“Like most Londoners, we descend from a melting pot of cultures including Jamaica, Greece and Iraq, and like most Londoners, we also find the city has the ability to drive you insane! In ‘Turned To Ash’ we’ve metaphorically captured that build-up of frustration…until you…implode…and turn to ash…

We also love guitar music and wanted to draw on our diverse range of influences to create a contemporary sound unafraid of being both heavy and song-driven. For us, combining the soaring vocals of Lianne La Havas with the down-tuned heaviness of Royal Blood is a perfect match!”
