Palmaria are a song writing duo from a small town in Italy, that have made London their home for creating their distinctive brand of Alternative R&B with lyrics about personal experiences that transports the listener in surreal and dreamy landscapes.
With a sound reminiscing of Sylvan Esso, Little Dragon and Oh Wonder, the duo first graced the airwaves in 2017 with their debut EP ‘Swim’. The project has since racked up over 1 Million streams on Spotify and had support from the likes of Complex, Clash, BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio.
In 2019, Giulia and Francesco took their art to the next level with a string of single releases, that were supported on a number of editorial Spotify playlists like 'Alternative R&B', 'Alt Pop’ and more. This led to support from Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio 1Xtra and BBC Introducing London, Earmilk, The 405, Atwood Magazine.
In June, their first London headline show at Servant Jazz Quarters was a huge success, selling out weeks in advance. In the following months, their music has been featured in H&M, Starbucks, JOE & THE JUICE, and playlisted by COLORS Berlin .
After an exciting summer with performances at festivals such as Wilderness, Palmaria have released their second EP ‘Grow’ on 8th November 2019, selected as a Top 5 EP from Jamz Supernova, and launched it with a show at The Waiting Room to celebrate it with their fans.
Their latest single 'Eden' came out on 3rd April, receiving popular and critical acclaim.
