Brooklyn rock and roll quartet, Native Suns, have released the official video for “Palindrome.” The single was featured on their recent debut EP, Songs Born from Love and Hate, which was released late last year via PaperCup Music.

It’s unclear who directed the video for “Palindrome,” but it features a mish mash of historical snippets from New York – with sporadic band shots. Watch the video above.

QWAM ‘Feed Me’

(7.5 / 10)

Basking in Brooklyn’s divergent muse of shallow hipster-facade and rock & roll revivalism,  QWAM‘s debut EP is enlightenment for those who don’t fit the mold. And the punk quartet’s lead singer, Felicia Lobo, has no problem denouncing pretentiousness on lead single, “Doggie Door,” as she shouts, “Why won’t you just take your badge of way too cool and drown it in your backyard pool.”

Prior to the announcement of Feed Me, I had no idea who QWAM were. But the band’s own description of the EP says it all:

 “written during 3AM subway rides, perfected in sweaty Brooklyn basements, and recorded with their friends at a studio. The songs are about ordering takeout in the pursuit of love and the strength found in being yourself.”

So you may be wondering, “Who is this QWAM you speak of?” Joining Lobo,  guitarist Matt Keim, bassist Eddie Kuspiel, and drummer Rachel Zisette, reminisces somewhere between mid-90s alt-rock and no-frills punk rock. The title track kicks things off with swaggering melodies and blunt instrumentation. You can easily pick out similarities to bands like L7 and Babes In Toyland, and if my reckoning is correct, I’d say Rancid meets Priests and Downtown Boys. “Glitter Paint” is a firecracker of barreling punk aggression – propelled by Keim’s hard-hitting guitar chords and chugging interludes. Lobo leads the song with a flurry of snarling vocals encompassing a personal dilemma of love-hate relationships.

QWAM slow things down a bit on “Dirty Feet,” yet the potent guitar chords, bobbing bass and piercing drums still hit like a Mack truck. Occasional riffage evokes memories of the buoyant melodies of 90s alt-rock, while remaining punk-as-fuck. QWAM’s blithe for social conventions and scene conformity is one of the most impressive facets of this emerging band. They’re not here for merit or the benefit of the doubt. In the saturated climate of Brooklyn’s hip cesspool, QWAM’s debut EP unleashes a shockwave of DIY ethos.
