Palm of Granite was conceived in 2008 as a vessel for the poetry of Los Angeles based artist Raffi Semerdjian. The band has existed as several different incarnations between Los Angeles and Yerevan, Armenia – with a broad line-up of musicians who’ve all impacted the journey of storytelling and sound. Currently, the project is recalibrating its frequencies for something more topical: a jingle for the concrete that continues to wrap us in our modernized caves; an anthem for the decomposing and reborn; a sing-along for lovers, long-gone; a ship to sail to the sirens and stitch their fucking lips shut once and for all.
