“Tokyo” music video

April 26, 2017 10:49 am

TEEN is back with a new music video for their track “Tokyo.” It was filmed at Mercury Lounge in NYC and directed by Jennifer Vanilla (Becca Kauffman of Ava Luna).

“The video for ‘Tokyo’ was filmed before and during a packed TEEN concert in New York City in the summer of 2016.

The barebones pre-show sequence is a conceptual and aesthetic reference to a choreographic collaboration between Michael Clark Dance Troupe and The Fall for their song, ‘Lay of the Land,’ in 1983. This version follows a cartoonish duo, ‘Jennifer in Tokyo’ and her zesty partner, who function as a sort of spritely id, pursuing pleasure amidst conflict like impish angel/devils on the shoulders of the song’s protagonist. Simultaneously, a less mythical and more concrete storyline takes place alongside it: the transformation the band undergoes from soundcheck in an empty room, to backstage, to showtime. The dancers usher us through this process, ultimately becoming spectators to the environment they have helped energize. As they recede into the crowd, the band steps into the spotlight, and the real show begins.” — Jennifer Vanilla

The band also has a few upcoming shows, including a Brooklyn date:
May 5th – Hudson, NY – Half Moon
May 6th – Winoski, VT – Waking Windows Festival
May 12th – Brooklyn, NY – Sunnyvale

Palm announces “Shadow Expert” + shares first single

April 25, 2017 10:03 am

We are extremely thrilled to announce Palm’s Carpark debut, Shadow Expert, will be coming out June 16th. The first single from the album, “Walkie Talkie,” is streaming now via NPR Music.

“In describing Palm to the uninitiated, it’s sometimes necessary to clarify the meaning of the group’s name by raising one’s hand in the universal symbol of greeting and goodwill. The act of corroborating the aural with the gestural occurs everywhere in their work. On their latest EP, Shadow Expert, the syntax of popular music is regarded suspiciously and often subjected to revisions or reversals. Without formal training in their instruments, the players are left to determine their own musical language.”

Pre-orders are available everywhere. Pick up a physical copy on the Carpark shop or digitally on iTunes. Order today and receive the first single “Walkie Talkie” instantly.

The band also announced a handful of North American summer tour dates to celebrate the release of their new record. Tickets will be available at 11am est on April 25th.
