"New Game+", the sophomore LP from Columbus, Ohio emo/rock band Palette Knife has been announced for release on January 20, 2023 via Take This To Heart Records. Their sophomore LP encompasses a vast array of rock/emo tunes that are reminiscent of scene stalwarts Into It. Over It, Tiny Moving Parts, Origami Angel, Charmer or a more intricately guitar based Modern Baseball. The theme of New Game+ interweaves classic 16-bit tropes of “Death Screen” and “Pause Screen” seamlessly into the LP sequencing.
The slow-building, fast climaxing ode to lockdown 1st single “Jelly Boi” is spacious as it crescendos into a fast-paced guitar attack outro. On "Damn Son, Dim Sum", the 2nd single from the new LP, the band gets right to it for two and a half minutes and churns out a riff-y pop-punk classic. Closer “…And That’s A Rock Fact.”, does what closers do and puts an empathic foot down on an entire piece of work that encapsulates what a rising rock/emo band is capable of.
