The Palms – A Band You Will Fall For Over and Over Again

It was a windy spring break 2014 at Venice Beach, when we first met up with Ben Rothbard and Johnny Zambetti – key players in the then band Terraplane Sun.
Nothing not to love about this ensemble of good souls and a sound that would make any lover of music cry for more.

Then it seems that life has a way of coming along and shuffling us all into the spots we are meant to shine – hence The Palms.

The Palms

When the chemistry is right anything is possible. Ben Rothbard has a voice you don’t come by often but once heard, stays with you wherever you go. Johnny lights up the room on guitar and nobody can replace the vibe and vision uniquely his own that makes this collaboration click.

‘I really believe in our body of work and I am behind it 100% – all the way.’

Ben Rothbard

The Palms bring a pineapple express kind of breeze – lending inspiration , freedom and escape to the average heart. Their honest lyrics about standing up for yourself and staying true – delivered with their downtown vibe – makes the essential pains of growing a lot more fun.

A new project – new vibes and lots of new music for all to enjoy. So much ahead for these guys and you don’t want to miss a thing.

I had the chance to catch up with them this week in Los Angeles on their way to the studio to see how they are feeling about where they are at right now.

Be sure to experience The Palms the month of February during their residency at The Satellite – the best place in Los Angeles for live music.

Behind the Music with The Palms

The overall message behind Future Love is the idea that we all live, love, learn, fuck up and live again.  As long as we all strive to be the best version of ourselves as possible, then we’re doing it right.  There’s become this culture of viciously attacking people online after they’ve been caught doing something illegal or immoral.  As if society has taken it upon themselves to become the moral police or something.  It’s like, no shit, we all make mistakes, it’s part of life and the people feeling the need to anonymously slander a stranger on twitter for getting caught doing cocaine at a baseball game or something, need to get over themselves and worry about their own shit. Our mentality is…fuck it, we’ve smoked it, we’ve drank it, we’ve stolen some shit and we’ve hurt some feelings and we’ve learned a lot in the process.  Stop judging other people for living their lives and focus on your own.
