Album Notes
As the founder, songwriter and creative soul of “trashy pop band” The Friggs, Palmyra Delran built a working model for the ideal punk girl group. The Friggs released debut CD "Rock Candy", described as "one of those classic debut albums", and singles collection "Today is Tomorrow's Yesterday". Opening for the Selecter, the Ramones, the Fleshtones, and Cheap Trick among others, The Friggs toured incessantly throughout the ‘90s. Their songs were also included in the movies "Superbad", "Jawbreaker", "Lipstick & Dynamite", and "Prey for Rock & Roll".

On her first solo debut EP titled "She Digs the Ride", Palmyra flirts with charm, surf rock, dysfunctional relationships, and solid guitar grooves described as “that fried Yardbirds tone mixed with early Stooges grime and oopsy-daisy pop”. Palmyra's song "Baby Should Have Known Better" was picked by Little Steven as the "Coolest Song in the World" in November '08, then voted "Coolest Song of 2008" by Underground Garage listeners

A digital single and video “Lies For You” was released in late 2010, followed by a tour in Scandinavia with Stupidity & the Cocktail Slippers.

2012 saw the release of punk rock kids CD called KinderAngst, a collaboration with NYC songwriter Rachelle Garniez, and features a special appearance from Debbie Harry.

Her digital single “You’re My Brian Jones” (released in Sept 2012), was recorded by Craig Dreyer at Mighty Toad Studio Brooklyn, and mixed by Geoff Sanoff at Stratosphere Sound Studio NYC, & INTL HQ Brooklyn. Palmyra is joined by KinderAngst collaborator Rachelle Garniez on Farfisa, Hammond B3, Harpsichord, Michael Lynch on bass, Mark Brotter on drums, Richard Devgreene on guitar, as well as guest backup singers the Cocktail Slippers, Betsy Todd, & Jenifer Jackson. “You’re My Brian Jones” was picked by Little Steven as his #1 song of the year for 2012.

Palmyra's next digital single "Shy Boy" (released in February 2013), will be followed by the long awaited full length CD "You Are What You Absorb" on March 5th.

I Love This Record!
"You Are What You Absorb" is one of the best rock records I've heard in a LONG time. A cross between early Joan Jett, Blondie, B52's, early Elvis Costello, and Nick Lowe with 60's mod, surf and girl pop thrown in, Palmyra Delran brings back what has been lost in rock for a long time....FUN. Clean, upbeat old fashioned rock n roll at it's finest. Amongst the modern dismal, cold and serious "alternative" style that has become so popular as of late, this CD is a breath of fresh air. The first track, "Shut Out" is one of the catchiest tunes I've heard in a long time - a sure hit. "You're My Brian Jones" is a guaranteed head bopper. My personal favorite tune on the CD, though, is "Never to Be Back Again" - almost Patti Smith-ish with strong 60's pop chord progressions (love the Farfisa organ throughout) - this one is a classic. "Oh No" is a guaranteed sing along and will get you on the dance floor for sure. All in all, a very strong album all the way through clearly defining a particular "sound" yet each tune has its own personality and catchiness. This is an absolute gem.
