Sweaty Palms, Scotland On Sunday, 26 June 2016

Published in Scotland On Sunday, 26 June 2016 | Words by Derick Mackinnon and Olaf Furniss. Read on Scotsman.com [in association with Lindisfarne Festival]

Scotland On Sunday, 26 June 2016, Sweaty Palms

Glaswegian quartet Sweaty Palms’ latest EP, ‘Love Me / Pretty Poor’ was recorded at Green Door Studios in Glasgow and is released on Friday on 7″ vinyl / download via new label Black Sheep Records.

From their social media posts and their lyrics, Sweaty Palms possess a wonderfully dark, observational humour in all that they do. And while ‘Love Me / Pretty Poor’ is a refreshingly brilliant record, their brand of scuzzy, lo-fi punk and grunge is best experienced live.

They play tonight at the George Orwell in Dundee, on Friday at Glasgow’s Broadcast (their official EP launch), on the T Break stage at T In The Park on 10 July and at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s on 15 July. They then embark on a UK tour that includes dates in London, Cardiff, and Manchester, and perform at Electric Fields Festival on 26 August.
