Polyvinyl Records presents a fanciful indie duo that speaks volumes for the current generation. New to the scene some few years ago, Painted Palms has ignited the world with sparkling music that is relatable and clearly conventional. With recent national and international tours, this encouraging duo is lighting up venues and picking up new fans in whichever region of the world they happen upon. Without further adieu, HIP Video Promo is pleased to introduce Painted Palms’ latest clip for the single “Forever.”
The music of Painted Palms is a collaboration between two cousins who grew up together in Louisiana. However, their communication levels were far less physical, being that they began started making music over the Internet when one moved to sunny San Francisco. Soon after, of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes discovered the band and them on tour.
Although both cousins currently reside in San Francisco, they continue to write in isolation and trade song ideas via e-mail. For their debut full-length album titled Forever, the duo pairs classic pop structures with modern electronic production to create instantly memorable melodies that show no sign of their virtual patchwork beginnings. Constructed of energetic sounds and lasting vocals, “Forever” is a clip that will surely leave you wanting more.
Geometric lines and shapes introduce “Forever” and bring viewers to the forefront of the matter. The clip serves as an invitation to the rational and irrational thoughts of Painted Palms, and also sets the tone for the undecided loners of the present generation. The clip starts out to be messy and unconventional, with a black-tar-like paint and stark, white backgrounds. However, “Forever” consists of more geometric lines and shapes, bringing us to the front row seat of Painted Palms’ stadium.
“Forever” pays homage to those of us stuck in our generation, unaware and still undecided of what we want to be. Although all grown up, Painted Palms ignites the idea that it’s okay to be multi-faceted and somewhat aloof in a world that moves oh-too-fast.
