When we heard the first minute of "If This Is Love", we thought "ah great, it's been a long time since we had a good indie-pop anthem". Then the chorus came, and big surprise! Big electric guitars that land without warning, and in the end we end up with an incredibly powerful indie-rock track.

The mix of genres in this new single from PALMIST is absolutely amazing. Alternating electronic elements and big rock sound, this Essex-based band offers itself the luxury of being able to reach an even wider audience than if they had been satisfied with a single genre.

It must be said that rock, and even very powerful rock, has always been part of PALMIST's DNA. If you are an alternative rock fan, you will love their previous releases. But what we love the most about this band is the fact that they have adapted to the evolution of current sounds and have succeeded in introducing more contemporary sounds to their production. After all, if you look at the bands that have crossed the years, if not decades, they are the ones that have dabbled in all genres, much like Coldplay. PALMIST has the potential, to be able to defy time while attracting several generations and several audiences with varied tastes.

The bridge literally made us soar, with its high-pitched vocals before a final chorus that electrified us. We just wanted to get up from the chair ... and throw it out the window!

Very well written, "If This Is Love" describes a somewhat tumultuous romantic relationship, which one would rather run away than continue.

With an energetic and dynamic vocal performance, stunning production, and undeniable writing talent, PALMIST sets the bar very, very high for this new single.

Despite a correct duration of more than four minutes, we didn't see the time pass. No problem, we'll be able to listen to it on repeat all summer long.

Added to our Main Spotify Playlist, our "Feeling Lost" playlist, and played daily on Indie Music Center's Radio.

Lyrics

She said I should come over now

Could I go down,

Could I go down, go down (yeah)

You know that I would make your day

Baby slow down,

Just slow down, you know that (yeah)

Nothing here for sale

But you’re a crazy girl

If you keep pushing then

You think I’ll give in

So you stir the flame

Saying loves a game

And I’m gonna be the one out on top

You’re saying

Search your feelings

‘Cause you know I’m not giving

You the chance to steal me

So go on and take it

Now I’ve got you

Right where I want you

I know that you’re loving on me

If this is love

I’m not falling

If this is love

Then I best start walking

Away

If this is love

(If this is love)

You really though you had a chance

Guess you know now

You know now

You know that

Nothing here for sale

But you’re a crazy girl

If you keep pushing then

You think I’ll give in

So you stir the flame

Saying loves a game

Well let me tell you in a way you’re used to honey

Search your feelings

‘Cause you know I’m not giving

You the chance to steal me

So you best believe that

Now I’ve got you

Right where I want you

Just listen to what I am saying

If this is love

I’m not falling

If this is love

Then I best start walking away

If this is love

Didn’t wanna lead you to me

I didn’t wanna waste your time

Didn’t want to put it bluntly

But girl you will never be my love

So I best start walking away

If this is love

(Woah)

(Woah)

If this is love

I’m not falling

If this is love

Then I best start walking away

If this is love

Didn’t wanna lead you to me

I didn’t wanna waste your time

Didn’t want to put it bluntly

But girl you will never be my love

So I best start walking away

If this is love

If this is love

If this is love
