Palmyra Delran’s World of Trash Pop

Released earlier this year, Palmyra Delran’s most recent album “You Are What You Absorb” should be streaming out of transistor radios on beaches all summer long. A self-described purveyor of Trash Pop, Delran knows how to get the hook stuck in your head. What else would you expect from someone who cites The Kinks, The Rolling Stones and early Blondie as influences? Sure, some of those hooks are vaguely familiar at times,(listen for the We Five’s You Were On My Mind in Delran’s Lies For You) but that familiarity is never a flaw in the songs. Instead, they set the table for Delran to drop in the perfect accompaniment that gives each song it’s identity; a little farfisa organ here, a fuzzy guitar lick there. Hooked yet? Good. Now, which way to the beach?
