Palma Violets return with raucous sing-along 'English Tongue'

London rockers Palma Violets have returned with an anthemic new single entitled ‘English Tongue’ today.

In all honesty the track picks up right where the four-piece’s debut 180 left off in 2013, with an indie-rock sound that takes its influence from luminaries of the capital’s guitar scene such as The Clash, The Libertines and The Jam.

‘English Tongue’ introduces itself with a pounding piano riff that gradually leads up to a ‘glass-in-hand’, ‘arms around your buddy’ chorus that is undeniably catchy.

The song is the second piece of material to be unveiled from the band’s upcoming second album, after the title track ‘Danger in the Club’ was also made available.

Listen to ‘English Tongue’ below and look out for more news on Danger in the Club, which will be released via Rough Trade May 4th.
