Painted Palms
Painted Palms is a collaboration between two cousins who grew up together in Louisiana, but started making music over the Internet when one moved to San Francisco. Soon after, of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes discovered the band and took them on tour.  Despite the physical distance separating the two songwriters, the duo have become adept at pairing classic pop structures with modern electronic production to create instantly memorable melodies that show no sign of their virtual patchwork beginnings.  Their sophomore album, Horizons, was released in September 2015.
