Youth Pallet are a rock-and-roll band at heart – taking influence from The Sidekicks, Stephen Malkamus & The Jicks, Kevin Devine and even Neil Young. The Cleveland band recently signed to, locally loved label, Delayed Gratification Records ahead of their new EP Coulda Been Free, coming out February 28th.

Sharing their infectious first single “Dolla Holla” with us today, the track will have you instantaneously tapping your feet. Catchy and one hell of an introduction, this may be the band’s fastest paced song to date. “It’s about fear of greed and consumerism, we buy things to distract ourselves from our feelings or to fill a void, but it only helps for a short time and we end up repeating the cycle,” says Youth Pallet about “Dolla Holla”.

While the group may not have all the answers, they are more than willing to ask and explore some of the hard questions we all face (if we are paying attention to the world around us). With heavy cymbals and guitars, “Dolla Holla” has almost a movie soundtrack quality- one you wouldn’t be surprised to hear coming out of a jukebox.  Releasing music since 2017 and playing local shows around Ohio, the band is gearing to take things to the next level in 2020 by bringing their energetic live show to new cities. You can check out their upcoming tour dates and pre-order the record here.
