“Dark Palms is a post-punk band from Olympia, WA that play the most aggressive music the genre has to offer. Their debut single “Ghost Horse” is a bass heavy package of this. It starts off with a kick and then unloads into a full assault of heavy hitting jams. The band sounds like a faster and heavier Christian Death or Spaceman 3. The band isn’t all about the heaviness of the genre though, as the song employs a generous amount of fuzz to the song. It’s exactly what you’d want out of a debut single from a post-rock band; it shows a well-written post-punk song encapsulating all your favorite parts of the genre, and then some.” — Noisey/Vice

“Oh, Dark Palms, where have you been all my life? Their new single, Ghost Horse, is a post-punk, fuzzed-out trip into pure American noir… straight out of weird America.” — PopShifter
“Dark Palms cast a long northwest shadow of trees and other forces of nature governed by ghost animal instincts and thrashing dark cloaked chords that carry out distorted and deranged power chord hooks that serenade the surrounding rural splendor.” — Impose Magazine
