Track Of The Day: Palm Haze – ‘Second Round’

Described as “another story told by the unconscious”, Vancouver-via-Brazil shoegaze duo Palm Haze have shared their latest single ‘Second Round’. Taken from their recent album Rêve Bleu – released via YHS Records – the track is a deceptively calm swirl of sultry vocals and riotous, fuzzy guitar sounds.

Formed of vocalist/bassist Anna Wagner and guitarist/producer Lucas Inacio, Palm Haze blend elements of alt-rock, shoegaze, and trip-hop to create moody, furiously dark noise. The pair lose themselves in the chaos of the loud and the quiet, which they demonstrate clearly on ‘Second Round’. It’s a five minute journey in to the “forbidden paths” of their inner world.

Speaking about their recent album Rêve Bleu, the pair explain: “[the record] will bring up chaotic emotions and thoughts, taking you much further from reality and closer to the wonders of uncertainty. Where could you go? What could you do? It’s a fantasy you fall on accidentally…It’s the kind of dream you’re afraid of, but also tempted towards.”
