Today Palm Springsteen share their explosive second single “Sister Sister” along with a video directed by Gilbert Trejo (Danny Trejo’s son) via Ones To Watch, who called it an “infectiously rhythmic track…characterized by jagged, driving guitar and a plunky, buoyant bass that would sound at home in a 1980s penny arcade.” Nick Hinman told Ones To Watch of the inspiration behind the track, “I went to my first club with some friends and ended up dancing with this girl for hours, and then found out at the end of the night it was actually a guy in drag,” says the singer. “She was so rad, we just kept dancing all night. I still miss her.”

Hinman on the video,

“Gilbert and I wanted to recreate this scene from ‘Liquid Sky,’ which is simultaneously about the club scene in New York in the 80’s and about aliens who come down to extract endorphins from people’s orgasms. There’s a scene where Anna Carlisle plays both the male and female leads, and gives a monologue wearing blacklight makeup. We recreated it in our own way, all on 16mm film, and wanted to simulate the rush of going nowhere fast.”

Palm Springsteen will be playing with The Technicolors at The Roxy in LA on 6/30 — tickets HERE.
