Gooch Palms - R U 4 Sirius? 7" (ANTIFADE)


"‘Shit-pop’ is how Sydney duo The Gooch Palms classify their music; but if you get past that unwelcoming description, and their ungainly name, you’ll find one of the true gems of the harbour city’s burgeoning retro-punk scene.

Along with acts like Straight Arrows, Circle Pit and Mother & Son, The Gooch Palms are bringing rock’n’roll back into vogue in Sydney. Just two members, it’s a girlfriend-boyfriend duo that play scuzzy, fuzzy garage-rock. It’s simple, loud, brash and bold, taking big chunks of 50s rock’n’roll, mixed with equal portions of 60s-style lo-fi punk. In concert, their live guitar and keys are complemented by a backing track of drums and second guitar to recreate their lo-fi, DIY studio recordings. Honestly, it’s not the most musically ground-breaking thing you’ll ever hear; but this duo aren’t setting out to achieve that sound.

The Gooch Palms recreate classic, tried-and-tested rock’n’roll, but infuse it with a new, darker, punk energy. It’s Chuck Berry meets The Ramones, The Rolling Stones meets The Cramps. It’s fun, silly, dumb and simple… and sure to get you dancing like a lunatic." - Josh Butler Pagesdigital
