The Palms


By Reanna Hilario

“The new beach boys” out from Malibu, CA, Johnny Zambetti and Ben Rothbard, first met late 2009 after an overheard conversation about The Strokes. In 2015, after several trials, tribulations, and their first musical project together, Terraplane Sun, the duo released their first self-titled EP as The Palms.

The Palms

The Palms first appeared on the KROQ Locals Only playlist last April with their song Levitate from their first full length album, Mulholland Dr. Their distinctive sound and masterful lyrics are what makes The Palms unique. Following the success of Mulholland Dr., The Palms are back with yet another perfect song to pair with a warm summer night.

Closer carries you into a summer night’s dream with its catchy piano line and Rothbard’s tantalizing vocals. The groovy bass lines have you tapping your toes, wishing you were dancing down Santa Monica Pier with friends on a cool summer night. So go ahead, grab a 6-pack and a couple of friends and go sink your toes in some sand. Just make sure you have an aux cord with you so you can blast Closer while you drive down PCH. You can stream 'Closer' HERE.
