More Palms More Palms

Artist/Band: Palms

Name: Al Grigg

Album title: Crazy Rack

Where did the title of your new album come from? It came from a picture that our drummer Tom took of a funny sign out the front of a thrift shop in Mona Vale. And since I work in a second-hand shop, so it seemed appropriate.

How many releases do you have now? This is our second album, so two. The first one is called Stepbrothers.

How long did it take to write/record? It kinda draws together songs that were written over a few years. Some pre-date the first album and some we wrote a week before we went in to record. We recorded it in two weeks.

Did anything in particular inspire you during the album creating? Just usual life/love junk. I think we're pretty ordinary people and the stuff that we write about tends to be pretty relatable to anyone with a heart.

What's your favourite song on it? I guess, No More. It is a really stripped back song with just vocals and guitar.The bare necessities, you know?

Will you do anything differently next time? I don't know if there'll even be a next time. I haven't written a new song in ages and I'm starting to get worried I've lost it for good.

When and where is your launch/next gig? Melbourne on 5 March, Adelaide on 11 March, Perth on 12 March, Brissy on 17 March, Gold Coast on 18 March, Sydney on 19 March, The Gong on 20 March.
