Band

 

 

 

 

Dani, Nick, Davey & Bill were the four heartbeats that made up The Palpitations.  They're enigmatic style has been described as 'evocative and powerful'  and 'direct, absorbing and irreducible'.  Time Out described the band as being an 'epic cross between My Bloody Valentine and The Wedding Present'  whilst Chris Martin (NME Radio) refereed to the band as 'a cross between Siouxie Sioux and Arcade Fire'.

 

The Palpitations quickly found a second home in the venues of London, from the glamour of Madam Jo Jos to the uber cool of Rough Trade, their sound became well established & loved throughout the Indie circuit where they formed a large following of keen revellers.  

 

The Palpitations disbanded in 2011 but the four heart beats carry on as good friends.
