Adventure is at the center of Emily Donohue’s new single, “Palmer”, even if it’s a dream. The singer-songwriter says, “‘Palmer’ is about the universal drive toward adventure, self-discovery, and reinvention. The pang in the stomach we all get from time to time, telling us to push beyond our comfort zone. Palmer is a song about escaping oneself, to imagine the path not taken, and living that life, even if only in a daydream.”
With the release of “Palmer”, it becomes clear that Donohue has come far from her humble roots performing with a ukulele at open mics just three years ago. Since then, the Seattle-based artist has become a notable artist in her regional scene, with her whiskey-warm voice setting the foundation for her soul-heavy indie rock delivery. “Palmer” is a gorgeous composition that encapsulates all of these Donohue trademarks. Its accompanying music video is equally as grand, featuring several shots of Donohue exploring beautiful natural landscapes.
