Laura Palmer was formed in The Hague in the year 2012. The band’s name Laura Palmer wasn’t only chosen because she was the main character in one of the best television series ever made. No, also to deceive people thinking Laura Palmer is one of those singer/songwriter kind of galls. Of course she is not!
Laura Palmer combines layered guitars in melodic songs. Alternating with drones and soundscapes, the four-piece band produces a sound that reminds you of shoegaze from the early 90's. But that's not all, influences from contemporary post-rock can also be heard. This style of music is also known as nu-gaze.
