Fake Palms Premiere Video For “Sparkles”

Guitarist Michael le Riche says it’s all about “sanity...or lack thereof.”

Toronto band Fake Palms signed to Buzz Records (along with fellow Canadian rock band Dilly Dally) this spring, and are releasing their self-titled debut on August 28th. The band blends post-punk and pop to make fuzzy, melodic tunes worth blasting through your headphones while wandering your city late at night. Above, check out the video for "Sparkles," the second single off their new album, which bandleader Michael le Riche told The FADER is "all about sanity or lack thereof." The track glitters with suspense, just like its accompanying video. As le Riche put it, "just like in real life, there aren't always clear cut answers."
