The release arrives alongside a surreal and abstract visual
Sydney musician LOVER has today shared his introspective new track, Palm Reader. Co-written with Nick Ward, the track continues the musicians exploration of alt-pop sonics, exisiting within a lush and atmospheric soundscape playing out below the musicians dreamy vocals.
Speaking of the track, the musician shares: "Palm Reader was started in my second session with Nick Ward, right after we recorded Wow. We had rough vocals from the day and decided to see if we could push the song further, like I did vocally in Wow, by adding the PC Music/hyperpop-inspired outro. I rewrote the verse multiple times and had my friend Campbell from Vacations re-record the guitars to get that huge, organic sound. I was lucky enough to have Les from LANY hear the track and want to help out. He really took the production to a whole new level and mixed all the elements from Campbell, Nick and I together so well. Lyrically I was thinking about how the people close to you are often way more perceptive to the path you are going down. I thought the Palm Reader was a great analogy for this."
The release arrives alongside a surreal visual, directed, produced and edited by the musician alongside frequent collaborator, Jayemol. In the clip, LOVER stars alongside Bob Seary as the palm reader, as the pair navigate the musicians past, present and future, rotating through chaotic and abstract imagery that represents moments from LOVER's life.
