Taken from the six-track EP ‘Delivery’ which Palm Friends wrote over the pandemic and recorded in three ten-hour sessions at The Terrarium in Minnesota, ‘Domino‘ takes something of a sideswipe at social media. More specifically, ‘Domino’ is a tempo-shifting ballad about staying open-minded in a world where everyone feels a social-media-driven pressure to be right all the time. As Shawnna Stennes sings “I’ll take the buzz from contradiction / ’cause I am not like you / Where I belong I love to be wrong, I swear.”
Palm Friends first came together as a means of healing. After his brother passed away, guitarist and singer Jesse Pedersen moved from New York back home to Minnesota to be with his family. As part of the grieving process, he called up some of his high school friends and asked if they wanted to start a band. With Jon Lindquist on drums, Will Bunton on bass and Jesse on guitar and vocals, the band quickly recorded their debut EP. Soon after, Shawnna Stennes joined, and the final Palm Friends lineup was solidified.
