Hearts of Palm UK


Three girls, three keyboards, and a lot of sparkle and sequins. Hearts of Palm UK are Erica Elektra (vocals, keyboard, guitar), Frankie Rose (glockenspiel, keyboard, percussion) and Billy Kaye (cello, autoharp, keyboard). Evoking the nostalgia of times gone by, the trio fuses the intensity of electro with the sweetness of lo-fi indie pop. Their work has drawn comparisons to Stars, Camera Obscura, The Postal Service, Metric and even Cyndi Lauper! Read more on Last.fm
Three girls, three keyboards, and a lot of sparkle and sequins. Hearts of Palm UK are Erica Elektra (vocals, keyboard, guitar), Frankie Rose (glockenspiel, keyboard, percussion) and Billy Kaye (cello, autoharp, keyboard). Evoking the nostalgia of times gone by, the trio fuses the intensity of electro with the sweetness of lo-fi indie pop. Their work has drawn comparisons to Stars, Camera Obscura, The Postal Service, Metric and even Cyndi Lauper! The story goes like this: Erica was playing music, experimenting with electronic beats and pop melodies.

After playing with a bunch of random musicians she’d met on Craigslist, she decided that it was high time to switch gears and recruit her best girl and childhood friend, Frankie Rose. And my, did Frankie Rose have a touch for percussion! They had a good run as a duo, playing CMJ in 2007 and winning the title of best “undiscovered” female music talent in America in a contest sponsored by GenArt & Biore Skin Care. Band life as a twosome was nice, but the girls were itching to add more live instrumentation to their line-up. In walked Billy Kaye - another friend and a veritable one-woman string section.

Now HOPUK is a trio made in heaven. Three girls having fun dressing up and making music for the world. The ladies are soon to be releasing their first full-length album, For Life, in the Fall of 2008. Go HOPUK, go!!! Read more on Last.fm.
