On this episode we are joined by Josh Mckeown from the band Palm Reader. Palm Reader in 2020 are almost unrecognisable from the savage, technical hydra that used to regularly see them described as the UK’s answer to The Dillinger Escape Plan. At this point, they use their brutal hardcore roots merely as a starting point; songs like ‘Ending Cycle’, ‘False Thirst’ and ‘A Bird and It’s Feathers’ are a conglomerate of disparate styles, the sort of compositions that can only be written with years of battle-hardened experience. They are songs that define a band not by constrictive genre boundaries but distinctive characteristics that mark them out as individual from their contemporaries. With ‘Sleepless’, Palm Reader are firmly establishing their own unique sense of identity.
