Fake Palms, is the project of Toronto-based artist, Michael le Riche. Today he has shared his new single, “Visions” the latest off his forthcoming record, Lemons, due out on September 16, 2022 via via Hand Drawn Dracula (Young Guv, Tallies, Tess Parks). Lemons was announced last month with the first single, “Satellite” and arrives as the third full-length from Fake Palms and reintroduces the project after a short break in which le Riche focused on his electro-synth project, Sauna.
Speaking about the track, he says: “Visions” is the sound of power chords and an overactive right arm. No more intricate, overly complex guitar parts or different time signatures. It’s Buzzcocks or the Dead Boys at its core, angular and jangly. “Musically, it’s the most direct thing I’ve ever done. No hiding behind walls of reverb, mutating time signatures, or vague lyrics.”
Michael le Riche collaborations on Lemons, include Dilly Dally’s (Ben Reinhartz), Ducks Ltd (Evan Lewis), Sauna (Braeden Craig), and Twist (Laura Hermiston). Taking to Candle Recording studio with long-time contributor, co-producer, and engineer Josh Korody (Breeze, Beliefs).
