What we said:
As the dawn broke on 2013, industry tastemakers got together to predict the main musical trends in the next 12 months. Ladies and gentlemen, these are their findings: 2013 was decreed to be the “Year of the Guitar” and this Lambeth-formed four-piece were duly elected as the ringleaders of the resurgence. Factor in their recent BBC Sound of 2013 nomination, and the NME award they bagged with their very first single, and you’ll see why poor Palma Violets have a lot to live up to with their debut album. Cynics might sneer that they’re not reinventing the wheel with this knowingly-retro, reverb-laden set, but that’s the whole point: 180 is good, old-fashioned, rock ‘n’ roll fun, and continues the legacy of label mates The Libertines and The Strokes nicely.
