Newcastle’s ‘ethereal-shoegaze quintet’ Palma Louca drop their latest single, Stationary Life. It’s a driving, yet atmospheric offering with elements of The Boxer Rebellion and VANT that will offer a divine musical backdrop to your inspiring daily exercise runs across frosted fields and dank woodlands trails. The song’s lyrics, like most of us have during lockdown, ponder life’s superficial and futile nature but are delivered in a way more uplifting and less priggish than most high street preachers. 

We’re delighted to be given an exclusive listen to the track ahead of it’s release on Tuesday 26th January, but first Joe Norton (guitarist/singer) tells us more about how the song came into existence…

“Stationary Life was born from a little game me and my brother Rich (guitarist) play now and then. We challenge each other to come up with a new piece of music in a minute or so, just to force out ideas without too much thought. Rich came up with a riff that was later adapted to create the main progression used in the song. Since then, we’ve had a lot of fun developing the track both at home and in rehearsals. As it is with all of our songs, Stationary Life was recorded at home, with the exception of drums, which were recorded over at Blank Studios in Newcastle.”
