Looking for the perfect song to ring in the weekend? Check out Geoff Palmer’s new single ‘This Monkey,’ a song so good you’ll want to keep blasting it on repeat all weekend long.
‘This Monkey’ is the second single off Geoff’s upcoming album, ‘Charts & Graphs,’ which comes stacked with 10 killer tunes ranging from punk rock to power pop and even some indie rock. There really is something for everyone here. I just file it under G for Guitars. And Greatness. And… well, Geoff.
"I wrote "This Monkey" with my buddy Zack Sprague. I had the main riff kicking around for a bit, but it took a bottle of whiskey and Zack to help me drink it to finish the song,” says Geoff. “We didn't have any idea how it would sound. It took on a life of its own and brought us with it, haha. I'm pumped with it, as our friends abroad would say it's "same same but different" leaning a bit more on the latter. Lucy Ellis said it sounds like a cool KISS song. I'll take a review like that all night and party with it every day!
The final version is the same structure as the demo we made the night we wrote it. I guess that means it's just how it's supposed to be, or we are lazy? Anyways, I think it's a banger and hope people dig it."
Recorded by David Minehan (The Replacements), and mixed by Mike Kennerty (All American Rejects), ‘Charts & Graphs’ will be out on July 23 via Stardumb Records on vinyl, Rum Bar Records on CD, and Memorable But Not Honorable on cassette. Pre-order the album HERE.
