Back in June Fake Palms, the project of Toronto-based musician Michael le Riche, announced the return with a new album called Lemons. He reintroduces the venture after a short break in which le Riche focused on his electro-synth project, Sauna.
So far we have heardseveraltracks from the record, and now, ahead of it arriving tomorrow (it marks the 100th release on the label Hand Drawn Dracula), he has shared one more preview — angular indie rock number “Flags”.
Having teased us already with the single “Satellite”, Fake Palms unleash another stunning cut, a short and punchy ripper “Visions”. It is taken from their upcoming album Lemons, set for release on September 16 via Hand Drawn Dracula.
Talking about the song, Michael le Riche, the artist behind the project, says: “It is the sound of power chords and an overactive right arm. No more intricate, overly complex guitar parts or different time signatures. It’s Buzzcocks or the Dead Boys at its core, angular and jangly. Musically, it’s the most direct thing I’ve ever done. No hiding behind walls of reverb, mutating time signatures, or vague lyrics”.
