Palm Daze is a psychotropic-chillwave aural dream featuring shimmering synths and hypnotic rhythms that lull the listener into a sense of hypnotic euphoria. The Austin-based nouveau psychedelic synth-rock band has made a name for itself as a heady and engaging live act, that concocts the perfect soundtracks for your next hallucinogen-driven slumber party. The group strays from the typical cliches found in modern psych-rock by creating a sound that combines a host of influences from Peter Gabriel to Pompeii-era Pink Floyd. The result is a unique and lush soundscape typified by vintage synthesizers, complex drum rhythms, deep, powerful bass, and a good dose of auxiliary percussion.
Palm Daze is known for their energetic and danceable live shows featuring synchronized lights and projected psychedelic visuals by contributing visual artist and collaborator Gabriel Phoenix.
Lead by keyboardist and vocalist Eric McClung, Palm Daze rounds out its trio with lifetime friend, bandmate, and drummer Ryan Heath, along with bassist Everett Bergstedt. Their strong musical coherence makes Palm Daze a unique presence that stands out among other musicians in the growing music scene in Austin, Texas, the ”Live Music Capital Of The World”.
Palm Daze’s latest release, Flower, dropping Friday, September 18th, 2020, has been perfected over several years with many talented collaborators. Flower was recorded and produced by award-winning producer and close friend of the band, Danny Reisch, and mastered by Max Lorenzen.
