Heavy Eyes

Stephen Carradini This chilled-out tune feels genuinely like a dream: it feels totally concrete but also gauzy around the edges, sort of like there’s something just over the next ridge that will pop the bubble, but until then it’s all floating and hazy. That tension is impressive, and gives this indie-folk/indie-rock track a unique feel (even among all the “dreamy” work out there).

…”A gorgeously meandering slice of dream-pop. The whole track is held together by the constant pulse of a distant reverberating piano, as skittering drums, gently unfurling guitars and warm analog synths come together to create a loose drifting whole. Heavy Eyes is a masterpiece”


“Absolutely perfect Dream Pop. Palm Ghosts is back with a new single proving why he is the perfect Dream Pop creator. Joseph Lekkas and a changing cast of bad hombres and nasty women make up Palm Ghosts. Originally from Philadelphia, now living in East Nashville, Lekkas really makes the best dream pop out right now. Taking a cue from Elliot Smith and the Velvet Underground, wrapped around his own unique vision, you get Palm Ghosts, frighteningly great music. Check him out before he becomes HUGE.”



Hello out there, can you hear me?
I was here now I am gone
Such a short time
And the days were sweet
And the days were long
Here in the springtime
Gone in the summertime

I had some friends, who all loved me
We used to spend our days outside
Running the high line
And the way I felt, when I made love to you
I never felt again, I never felt again
Cast aside, with no home
Nowhere to lie, no one to hold
Always down, always down
Wish I could feel good, wish I could feel good

Palm Ghosts Nashville, Tennessee

Palm Ghosts is the sound of an 80s prom in a war zone…located in the dead heart of country music, Nashville, TN.

More at home in rainy Manchester, the quartet weaves cinematic dream pop and new wave with brooding post punk.

Embracing their 80’s idols, like New Order, The Cure, David Bowie, John Carpenter and even Divine, Palm Ghosts take the genre to soaring new heights.
