Premiere: The Gloomies Paint a Surreal Picture of Paradise with new video for “Palms”

Based in southern California, The Gloomies are very familiar with palm trees. They named a song after them on their recent album, Romance; while “Palms” isn’t necessarily about loose fronds, it is reminiscent and surreal at the same time.
