THE PALMS Cover Of Lana Del Rey’s “Love” Out Today

Bridging the gap between Laurel Canyon folk and West Coast beatsTHE PALMS–who is Ben Rothbard and Johnny Zambetti–create a true modern L.A. soundToday (March 30), they’vemade available their cover of Lana Del Rey’s “Love” from her Lust For Life album.
“We’ve both been big fans of LDR’s work, since she first announced herself to the world with ‘Blue Jeans’ and ‘Video Games,” says The Palms’ Ben Rothbard on their choice of the cover. “Both being born and raised in LA, her music and vintage Hollywood aesthetic struck a chord with us, as well as her genre bending take on pop music.  In 2016, we played on a festival bill with her and was blown away by the love we received from her fans, many of whom are still supporting us.  They’re as loyal and passionate of a fanbase as you will find.  End of the day, this is our way of saying we dig what she does, while also putting our own little spin on it. “
Currently THE PALMS are supporting their independently released mixtape album Mulholland Dr which was written, recorded and produced out of their tiny home studio in Malibu, CA on super old gear they coin “vintage digital.” A complete DIY act, they garner over half a million streams monthly on Spotify.

The Palms is l-r Johnny Zambetti and Ben Rothbard.
With hints of West Coast psychedelia, hip-hop, folk and more, The Palms have effortlessly combined their love of ALL popular music to create a fresh, uplifting sound, resulting in the perfect soundtrack to a summer night in Los Angeles.  The need to make music without barriers or inhibitions is what initially inspired Johnny Zambetti and Ben Rothbard to explore artistic ideas outside of their band Terraplane Sun. Before they knew it, The Palms were born. From there, the band started to make their presence known. After reaching #1 on the HypeMachine Most Popular Track’s list, being featured in publications such as Interview and charting on KCRW’s MBE and Spotify’s Viral UK charts, the band knew that their music was connecting with listeners in a positive way. Millions of streams and YouTube views later, The Palms have made it clear that they’re here to stay and the momentum is only intensifying.  The quick and Independent rise of The Palms is no fluke. Their unmistakable sound, style, songwriting and DIY approach has helped create their distinct place in today’s musical landscape. It is the message behind their songs however, that The Palms hope will make the greatest impact.  Nina Simone said it best. “How can you be an artist and not reflect the times?”
