Early praise for Palm Springsteen:
“Meet the new generation’s LCD Soundsystem—Palm Springsteen.” - BTR Today

“Palm Springsteen draws from elements of new wave, post-punk, synth pop and, ahem, “blow pop” to create something that even E.T. would phone home about.” - Culture Collide

“Palm Springsteen are cheeky and in-your-face in the best way – with a confidence and boldness worthy of some of the most famous names in the industry, their music challenges you not to move to it and makes you question if it was made for Earth or an intergalactic dance party.” - Atwood Magazine

“Palm Springsteen is anchored and defined by the voice, and as the memories of decadence marked by the aura of The Strokes, the band explodes into candor and guitar ridden excellence.” - Come Here Floyd

Today Palm Springsteen share their explosive second single “Sister Sister” along with a video directed by Gilbert Trejo (Danny Trejo’s son) via Ones To Watch, who called it an “infectiously rhythmic track...characterized by jagged, driving guitar and a plunky, buoyant bass that would sound at home in a 1980s penny arcade." Nick Hinman toldOnes To Watch of the inspiration behind the track, “I went to my first club with some friends and ended up dancing with this girl for hours, and then found out at the end of the night it was actually a guy in drag,” says the singer. “She was so rad, we just kept dancing all night. I still miss her.”

Hinman on the video,
“Gilbert and I wanted to recreate this scene from 'Liquid Sky,' which is simultaneously about the club scene in New York in the 80’s and about aliens who come down to extract endorphins from people's orgasms. There’s a scene where Anna Carlisle plays both the male and female leads, and gives a monologue wearing blacklight makeup. We recreated it in our own way, all on 16mm film, and wanted to simulate the rush of going nowhere fast.”

The single follows their first track “Hey There, Cowgirl,” which was featured on Spotify'sNew Noise and Fresh Finds playlists. Since the release of “Hey There, Cowgirl,” Palm Springsteen has played Coachella's Desert Jam Day Party and will make their first festival debut at this year’s ACL Festival in Austin. Palm Springsteen have performed alongside the likes of Foster The People, X Ambassadors, Bass Drum of Death, and most recently played Zee Berg’s “Prom” that featured Phoebe Bridgers, Ryan Ross, and more.

"Hey There, Cowgirl” was released at an epic party hosted by the band at the iconic western-themed Saddle Ranch restaurant in LA. They took over the spot, brought their own sound, lights, and packed the restaurant with over 400+ friends and fans. Check outFLAUNT’s coverage of the event + a video of the wild night here.

Palm Springsteen will be playing with The Technicolors at The Roxy in LA on 6/30 -- tickets HERE.

ABOUT PALM SPRINGSTEEN:
When you hear the name Palm Springsteen (a name so good that John Mayer recently shouted them out on Instagram) you know exactly what kind of band to expect. A sound reminiscent of The Strokes and LCD but with a sense of humor, Palm Springsteen is filling a void in contemporary music. Band is comprised of newcomer Nick Hinman, Noah Gersh (ex- Portugal The Man & PartyBaby), & Zee Berg (The Like)Mark Foster fell in love with their demos and asked them to support the Foster the People US headline tour last year - even though they had no music released. Crowds loved the band and they sold out of merch on the first date. The buzz caught the attention of legendary agent Marsha Vlasic at AGI who has officially come on board. Palm Springsteen is currently in the studio with legendary producer Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83, The Kooks). The first single “Hey There Cowgirl was released in February and debuted at #5 on New Noise by Allison Hagendorf who is a fan. Expect more music on the way.
