ODP NEW MUSIC REVIEW 2/7 – PALISADES “I’M NOT DYING TODAY” from RISE RECORDS

Iselin New Jersey’s PALISADES has just dropped a new  EP entitled “I’m Not Dying Today” (Rise Records).  This six piece  band formerly known as Marilyn Is Dead has honed a razor sharp mix of Post Hardcore, Pop, and Electronica to produce a 5 tracks of forward motion and huge uplifting choruses.   Strong melodic vocals backed by aggressive rhythms and breakdowns floating in a sea of pop/techno infused perfection, PALISADES carves their own identity in a genre that is beset by clones, with so many bands picking up the pop core/pop punk influences.  Truly something for everyone who is a fan of modern PopCore.  Personal faves on this trip were Immortal and Wolves, but each and every track is a winner.  5 of 5 horns.

PALISADES is: Louis Miceli – Vocals,  Matt Marshall – Guitar,  Xavier Adames – Guitar/Vocals, Earl Halasan – Guitar/Programming, Brandon Reese – Bass, and Aaron Rosa – Drums.
