Pallas, Pallas

Atlanta's Pallas make art post-punk akin to many groups that were emerging in the 80's who leaned towards more abstract, atmospheric and post-modern approaches to their song writing. Pallas take an interest in rhythms usually not found in western music, the complexities of 1970's free and avant-jazz and some how stew it down to a primitive form - building songs more in the vein of pop structure out of these creative ideals. Singer Danielle Brutto's voice has a ghost-like quality that floats along side guitarist Zane Dufrees harsh jabs and strange textures. The rhythm section of 19-year old drummer Decker D'also and bassist Valentina Tapia supply an angular, confident but always bizarre rhythm and tempo to the groups compositions.
