First heard "It's Midnight in Honolulu" when DJ'ing in 2008 from a promo copy sent in that had a catchy album cover. What an awesome album that seems hardly anyone knows about and has practically fallen into pure obscurity since then. This is definitely not an "Electro" album, but more so an avante-garde/indie rock style. I am having a real hard time comparing Palms to any other band or group because their sound is so unique, and quite varied as well. Der Koenig, the opening track subtly reminds me of The Knife (Swedes) singing in German.
It’s Midnight in Honolulu. Palms at this point are probably too inexperienced to pursue a style with this kind of historical debt. Which might be why some portions of It's Midnight In Honolulu- a promising record with several gratifying stretches- come across as stilted and overthought. When Korinth shrieks atop "Monte Alban"'s pulsating minimal synths, it feels like the duo is aiming for difficulty rather than quality. The same goes for "Hang Your Head", one of a handful of rock-leaning numbers

Here’s the thing: Palms’ lyrical obsession with darkness and light is matched up with some rather unsettling music, bewildering but beautiful stuff that toes the line between being compulsively listenable and downright off-putting. Don’t let that latter point steer you clear of giving It’s Midnight In Honolulu a chance. Just be prepared for the exorcism that is track four. With beats that sound like a slo-mo shuffleboard game, barely grazing the ground like the feet of ghosts, and a positively possessed Korinth, Monte Alban made us reach for the stop button in the beginning
