Have You Heard: Palindrome

Have you heard of Palindrome? Here's our quick chat with the band.

How did you get together?
Jordan de Pasquale (vocals/multi-instrumentalist): “Well Joel and I have been playing together in bands for over three years now so it was only natural we started this project together. Palindromes started when I was working on some of my own originals that I ended up putting on the Internet as demos. The demos generated some interest among the local music scene so I decided to recruit Joel and take it to the next level. We have been playing as Palindromes since November 2011.”

Sum up your musical sound in four words.
“Feel good Layered chills.”

If you could support any band in the world – past or present – who would it be?
Tough question. We have so many influences in our music but if I had to choose one (from the past) to play with it would have to be The Smiths. Morrissey's baritone vocals get me every time. And I suppose we would love to play with Radiohead in the present. No explanation needed.”

You're being sent into space, you can't take an iPod and there's only room to bring one album – which would it be?
Cut Copy – Bright Like Neon Love. This is one of those rare albums I find you can listen to over and over without it ever getting old or boring. Opening track Time Stands Still would be the perfect track to float around space to.”

Greatest rock'n'roll moment of your career to date?
This was definitely when Joel and I played a show in Melbourne supporting Skrillex (he is one of the shortest people I have ever met) at a cool venue. Not only was it one of our most well-received shows but later in the night the Dupstep extraordinaire proceeded to shout us drinks for the rest of the night. Too much Dubstep and too much Jack Daniels produced one set of lost keys and one $600 key replacement fee. Thanks  Skrillex!”

Why should people come and see your band?
“We blend together different genres to create a unique live show comprising of ambient lo-fisynths, catchy melodies along with upbeat, and sometimes slow, drum beats. Music goers have called our live show exciting, experimental and fun.”
