"‘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
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
