a new video from The Silver Palms: “Superstar”

We’ve been closely following the waxing fortunes of The Silver Palms, a really young and hugely promising band from the extreme southeast corner of Georgia. I shot some photos of a couple of recent gigs — in January at The Jinx and a few weeks ago at Savannah Stopover — and posted about their first video “Georgia Boy” (over 12,000 views and counting) and about their recent UK dates opening for The Orwells and Jake Bugg.

And now a new video has been released, “Superstar”:

On top of the obvious merits of the song itself, I love the bold, direct choices in the video — the black and white, the closeups, the contrast.
