|PureVolume recently interviewed Chino Moreno and Aaron Harris of Palms about the band's new self-titled album. |
The music's pretty visual. From the first time I heard it, even though it was a lot to take in, I immediately got this cinematic feeling. The music is panoramic to me. I'm looking at it, listening to it, and seeing all kinds of different images. Even with the name Palms, we didn't come up with it too late into the process. Everything gave it this feeling. I felt like it was very cinematic. A lot of the lyrics are painting pictures of landscapes. There's not too much storytelling in the lyrics. It's more or less the music is speaking to me and, I think, you guys as well in a very visual way. I paint along with what I'm hearing.
