Although they are relatively new to Tucson’s growing music scene, Burning Palms are fast becoming the next local export soon be on everyone’s radar. With aesthetic roots in American gothic literature, post punk, and 60’s garage (the band cites influences ranging from Nick Cave to Bauhaus to Patti Smith and even more contemporary punk stalwarts in the late Jay Reatard), Burning Palms tiptoe the threshold of punchy psych-rock and seductive whimsy. Burning Palms’ leading force Simone Stopford (Vox, Guitars) began the band as a solo bedroom project in Sydney, Australia. Her studies led her to the Arizona desert in hopes of becoming a yoga instructor, and upon discovering the area’s vibrant music scene, she decided to stick around and assemble a gang of like minded souls. Stopford found a kindred spirit in Julia Deconcini (Vox/ Percussion) and from there added the other essential pieces to the Burning Palms puzzle.

Doesn’t everyone just love Scorpions? I don’t mean the insectile beasts that sting with their ferocious bite or the Spider-Man villain, but rather the great 70s and 80s rock group that rocked the world with their smooth hooks and catchy tunes. People mostly know them for their later material where they sold their souls for money, but what those poor fools are missing out on is the brilliance of the material when Uli Jon Roth was handling the lead guitar duties. And as such…Virgin Killer.

ακούς βρετανική σκηνή
και λες αχ, λονδινάκι ωραίο
να πήγαινα ένα ταξιδάκι
αχ, έστω ένα μεταπτυχιακό εκεί στον βορρά
αχ, εκεί στα χάιλαντς
κι εκεί που ήδη τελειώνεις το πρώτο english breakfast tea
και πας για το δεύτερο και σ’ έχει πιάσει λιγούρα
λες δεν τρώω και κάτι
σ’ έχω την λύση “english tapas”
συνοδεύουν ευχάριστα κάθε λιγούρα σου για βρετανική αύρα
στίχοι που ευωδιάζουν βοθρίλα
περιγράφουν κάτι που είχες δει στο trainspotting
κράζουν τα γυμναστήρια (army nights)
τον μπόρις τζόνσον (moptop)
και μισούν κάθε είδους αφεντικά (bhs)
μουσική που δεν την λες και χιπ χοπ
λίγο πανκ μπορεί
οι ειδικοί ίσως την πούνε ηλέκτρο-ποστ-πανκ
αν τους έχεις δει live,
ο ένας φωνάζει κρατώντας το μικρόφωνο
ο άλλος χορεύει ενώ στο ένα χέρι κρατάει μπύρα
κι έχει το άλλο στην τσέπη του

Someone described the music as “Loud, dark, therapeutic, and rough around the edges” and Anton once said he played “black angst-ridden power pop.” Both quotes sum up Terrible Feelings pretty well. Place their sound somewhere in the wastelands between Wipers, Redd Kross, Ebba Grön and Murder City Devils.Terrible Feelings from Malmö, Sweden have existed since fall 2009.They sprung out of late parties, punk rock, pop, and friendship. The band has to date released three 7”s and one full length album. They’ve embarked on no less than five full European tours and two US tours (one on each coast). They’ve shared stages with bands such as Jeff the Brotherhood, White Lung, Imperial State Electric, Fucked Up, The Raveonettes, and The Babies; and were handpicked by none other than Refused as support in both Europe and Sweden on their final tour.
