Dark Palms share "Locket," tour (2015)

Olympia’s Dark Palms are excited to share their own brand of eclectic goth pop and post-punk on their latest single “Locket” via PopMatters.

Formed in the early months of 2015 by Timothy Grisham (Happy Noose), the band pick-up where Grisham’s former project left off, scraping the depths of post-punk’s darkest corners, though Dark Palms are doing things decidedly heavier. Things aren’t all noise and gloom though, as “Locket,” the b-side to the band’s debut single proves, there’s a degree of gothic romanticism just beneath Dark Palms’ shadowy exterior.
The quartet, comprised of Grisham (guitars), Kenrick Ward (drums), Roger Landberg III (bass), and Laurence Goldenstar (vocals) have cut their teeth in the local punk scene, collectively having played in Happy Noose, The Revlons, Fabulous Downey Brothers, The Shidt and more but Dark Palms is a fresh beginning, an awakening of a dark and uncompromising sound. Rock Therapy Records is set to release the band’s debut “Ghost Horse b/w Locket” 7-inch on August 4 (pre-orders are now available).
Since their formation earlier this year, Dark Palms have been busy, writing, recording, and playing a constant barrage of shows throughout the Pacific Northwest. With a jam packed summer schedule and the band’s upcoming full length debut set for release later this year, Dark Palms aren’t looking to slow down anytime soon.
