Discovery: Palomas

Palomas are an alternative rock band from Phoenix, USA who have teamed up with Grammy award-winning producer Mikal Blue for their new festive track Missing Mistletoe.

Though a Christmas song, Missing Mistletoe is not exactly full of holiday cheer. About having your heart broken and being left out in the cold, Palomas deliver their story with well-observed lyrics and jangly, laidback instrumentals. In many ways, it’s the perfect antidote to the legions of Christmas cheese.

The members of Palomas have been creating music together since primary school and were previous finalists in Alice Cooper’s Proof competition, which won them recording time and the attention industry decision-makers. They’ve clearly made best use of the insight, Missing Mistletoe is a wonderfully put-together song. You can check it out below.
