Palms is a newly formed Los Angeles based quartet featuring three former members of ISIS (Aaron Harris, Clifford Meyer and Jeff Caxide) with Deftones’ vocalist Chino Moreno. Palms’ debut album has just been released by ISIS’ former label, Ipecac Recordings.
"Palms is the slow-orbiting-rocket float of Oceanic-era Isis painted in soft colors, now with the gushing, soaring melodies that would work on an older sibling’s mixtape next to Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen, U2, or Depeche Mode." – Spin
"For post-rock fans, the news that three-fifths of Isis collided with Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno to form Palms couldn’t have been any more thrilling or the end product any more anticipated. Thankfully, the group’s self-titled debut delivers. 4 Stars." – Alternative Press
"As the name implies, this feels very Los Angeles – Michael Mann’s Los Angeles – pulsing with strange, isolated life and beauty. Moreno’s ethereal singing fits that vibe perfectly." – Decibel
"Palms executes dense and droning atmospherics that are spacey and organic. 9/10" – Outburn
