Sweaty Palms hail from Glasgow, a city with a seedy underbelly.
The band seem to take this barely restrained aggression and channel it in their music, a dank, black-clad vision of post-punk bedlam.
Antecedants could include everyone from The Fall to 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster, a sound that is both violent and hilarious.
Debut single 'Queer Fatwa' is forthcoming on RIP Records, and it owes its provocative title to Jon Ronson’s book Them.
The reference is to an Islamic fundamentalist, who wants to place a 'queer fatwa' on the author, an episode he recounts in typically wry fashion.
Sweaty Palms explain: "The phrase is hysterical, it's just not two words you imagine to see together. The rest of the song is loosely based around extremism, from Islamist militants to the dirty gringos of the western world."
