Pallmer: ‘Bricks’

Canadian duo Pallmer arrive with reassuring vulnerability and a collaborative sonic intuition which is both remarkable and cathartic.

Emily Kennedy (cello, vocals) and Mark Kleyn (viola) make us feel as though we are intruding thanks to the intimacy they create. The magic they weave through layering various pluckings, lush vocal passages, and a weeping falsetto viola topline is utterly spellbinding. 

It’s songs and performances like these that we need every now and again to remember how vital it is to take a breath but also sit back and admire how powerful it is when dynamic plays a hushed role in music.
