Band of the Week: Hearts of Palm UK

You'd think with all the electronic bits in LA indie pop duo Hearts of Palm UK's songs that they might sound better on your stereo or in your car than in-person at some music venue, but you know what? They're pretty amazing live. Lead singer Erica Elektra's voice is as clear as a fucking bell and, you know, who isn't a complete sucker for the glockenspiel?!

Hearts of Palm UK's next show is at The Viper Room with RFSL favorites The Happy Hollows and Thailand, and the new-to-me Good On Paper. (It's free if you message them in time to get on the list. Otherwise, it's $10.)

After that, the band is heading on a mini-tour of Northern California and back into the studio to work on a full album, so this'll be your last chance to see them play out in town for awhile.

Here are four free MP3s that should inspire you to brave the lames of the Sunset Strip next Monday to catch them.

- I Flow MP3
- Jonathan (That Fucking Motherfucker) MP3
- Portugal MP3
- People & Logistics MP3
