Palma Violets is a four-piece indie/garage rock group out of Lambeth, London. Before their Chicago debut on their first North American tour, Palma Violets sat down with Katie Owens for their first Chicago interview. Conversation went from Chipotle mayonnaise, to the quest for true love, and getting “friend-zoned.” Palma Violets full-length album, 180, released on Rough Trade Records on February 25. Palma Violets will be back at Schubas Tavern on May 1.
