Palmas – “Where Are You Going?”

“Where are you going now, where are you going? All of your younger days are gone, where are you going?” – lyrics

“The lyrics to our song ‘Where Are You Going?’ were inspired by my mothers. Together, they adopted 8 children and sacrificed their entire previous lives to take care of us. My adopted brother John and sister Lora were both very sick and passed away at a young age. I just remember a distinct moment where I saw the light disappearing from my mother’s eyes. It was like she had nothing left to give.”  – Kurt, lead singer

“As I got older, I reflected on all that they had given up to give us a comfortable life. I could see that they carried around a lot of anger and sadness for justifiable reasons. Money was tight, tensions always seemed high, and there were many times when I felt like she resented me and everyone around her for the life she had given up. Also, all of her younger days had passed her by and this song asks the question, what now?” – Kurt, lead vocalist

Palmas’ musical influences include Phoenix, Mamas and Papas, Marvin Gaye, and Tame Impala.

In conclusion, we recommend adding Palmas’ “Where Are You Going?” single to your personal playlist.
