“Influenced by Echo and The Bunnymen, The Cure and Dead Can Dance, Palm Ghosts’ new single’s groovy and psychedelic-like guitar lines set the song on an incredible cinematic soundscape with the help of dreamy instrumentals and a melodic beat.”


“Nashville’s murky indie rock quintet Palm Ghosts dip their toes into cinematic soundscaping with their latest track, “Who Knew Me Better Than You.” Meandering guitar lines set the song up for success, combined with the brooding fervor of Joseph Lekkas and Erica Whitney Wilkes’ vocal duet. Despite its sunny instrumentals, the track takes on a bit of a melancholy tone, stirring up the deep introspection Palm Ghosts is famous for. This single is the precursor to the band’s upcoming third album, Architecture, promising more electronic ambience and some 80s rock flare.”

“Who knew me better than you” was the first song written for the new Palm Ghosts record “Architecture”, out June 8th on Ice Queen Records. It signaled a change for the band from the electro-laced dream pop of former singles to more darker post punk leanings, a la The Cure and early Dead Can Dance.”


“Joseph Lekkas is the brains behind Palm Ghosts. With his song “Who Knew Me Better Than You?” he effortlessly pulls off an indie classic as we used to only hear in years gone by. We immediately remember The Shins or the Shout Out Louds.”-


“The laidback indie-goth tone of this track shines outside the norm. The mix of both of the lead vocals adds a unique aspect to the track that allows it to stand out.”



Let’s just say that it’s over
Nothing left but to leave you alone
I’ve got eyes on the door
No more lies anymore, anymore

I grew tired of the games
Happiness always falls out of frame
There’s no hope without light
Break my heart like you did every night

I don’t care where you’ve been
Sneaking out as the days creeping in
There’s no right without wrong
When darkness falls, then it won’t be long

Shadows soften your face
Reaching out for an empty embrace
Turn our song into silence
Sing it back to me now, to me now

Who knew me better than you ?
For that I’m grateful
I know whatever you need
you’ll find it
And I’ll never forget you, forget you
No I’ll never forget you
