Painted Palms is the duo of cousins Reese Donohue and Christopher Prudhomme, both living on opposite coasts of the United States. This long-distance collaboration, an exchange of music and ideas, gave life to their debut five-track EP, Canopy, released in mid-november.
The result is up-beat and psychedelic with overlapping synths, light guitar strumming and reverberating vocals. It’s a blend of many genres, from chillwave to experimental-pop, somewhere between Animal Collective’s trippy rock and Neon Indian’s colorful electro.
