Palmistry – Lifted

palmistry

As the son of non-denominational church founders and pastors, Palmistry, the project of London-based artist Benjy Keating has always felt like a bit of an outsider. This comes through in the music of the singer slash songwriter slash producer, whose hybridized style of contemporary pop feels fresh and familiar at the same time. Combining elements of R&B, dancehall and experimental electronic — with clear Caribbean influences — Palmistry defies genres and expectations to traditions of form. His debut LP PAGAN arrives via Brooklyn label Mixpak on June 17 and can be pre-ordered here. Meantime, listen to the rhythmic and buoyant single “Lifted” below.
