Listen: Palmistry’s ‘Lifted’ Is A Neo-Dancehall Summer Jam

The second single from London musician Palmistry’s ever-more promising debut album in June, “Lifted” could be an early candidate for “that song” you hear everywhere this summer. Integrating dancehall rhythms into the chilly vibes of London’s club music, he finds a satisfying middle ground between them, like dropping a few ice cubes into hot coffee. The vocals aren’t exaggerated, but Palmistry makes his presence felt with the light inflections that connect with the beat’s tempered synth bounce. It’s a slow burner, one that has the potential to keep burning all summer. His debut PAGAN arrives June 17 on Mixpak.
