New Scottish music: Sweaty Palms

Glaswegian quartet Sweaty Palms' latest EP, Love Me / Pretty Poor, was recorded at Green Door Studios in Glasgow and will be released on Friday on 7' vinyl and download via new label Black Sheep Records.

Sweaty Palms

From their social media posts to their gig posters and their lyrics, Sweaty Palms possess a wonderfully dark, observational humour in all that they do. And while Love Me / Pretty Poor is a refreshingly brilliant record, their brand of scuzzy, lo-fi punk and grunge is best experienced live. They play tonight at the George Orwell in Dundee, on Friday at Glasgow’s Broadcast (their official EP launch), on the T Break stage at T In The Park on 10 July and at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s on 15 July. They then embark on a UK tour that includes dates in London, Cardiff, and Manchester, and perform at Electric Fields Festival on 26 August. Listen at:
