As the founder, songwriter and creative soul of “trashy pop band” The Friggs, Palmyra Delran built a working model for the ideal punk girl group. After playing drums in the band Pink Slip Daddy, she began writing songs with Pink Slip Daddy bandmate Ben Vaughn (composer for “3rd Rock From the Sun”, “That 70’s Show” & “Psycho Beach Party”).The Friggs released debut CD "Rock Candy" and singles collection "Today is Tomorrow's Yesterday", toured incessantly throughout the ‘90s, opening for the Selecter, the Ramones, the Fleshtones, and Cheap Trick among others. They were also included in the movies "Superbad", "Jawbreaker", "Lipstick & Dynamite", and "Prey for Rock & Roll".
On her first solo debut EP titled "She Digs the Ride", Palmyra flirts with charm, surf rock, dysfunctional relationships, and solid guitar grooves described as “that fried Yardbirds tone mixed with early Stooges grime and oopsy-daisy pop”. Palmyra's song "Baby Should Have Known Better" was picked by Little Steven as the "Coolest Song in the World" in November '08, then voted "Coolest Song of 2008" by Underground Garage listeners, and featured on the show’s CD compilation, The Coolest Songs in the World Vol. 8, out now on Wicked Cool Records.
A digital single and video “Lies For You” was released in late 2010. Palmyra then toured Scandinavia backed by Swedish band Stupidity, playing shows with Norwegian gals The Cocktail Slippers.
2012 saw the release of punk rock kids CD called KinderAngst, a collaboration with NYC songwriter Rachelle Garniez, and a special appearance from Debbie Harry. “KinderAngst” is getting the thumbs up from punk rock kids and parents too.
Her digital single “You’re My Brian Jones” was released in Sept 2012, and was voted #6 Coolest Song of 2012 by Underground Garage listeners, and #1 by Little Steven.
Palmyra’s full length CD “You Are What You Absorb” will be released on March 5th 2013. “The title comes from a lifetime of absorbing music and pinching production ideas. Not just listening to music, but deconstructing it and putting it back together my own way” as described by Palmyra. It was recorded by Craig Dreyer at Mighty Toad Studio Brooklyn, and mixed by Geoff Sanoff at Stratosphere Sound Studio NYC, & INTL HQ Brooklyn. Palmyra is joined by KinderAngst collaborator Rachelle Garniez on Farfisa, Hammond B3, Harpsichord, Michael Lynch on bass, Mark Brotter on drums, Richard Devgreene on guitar, as well as guest backup singers the Cocktail Slippers, Betsy Todd, & Jenifer Jackson. “Any medium can influence any other medium”, Palmyra explains. “I arrange songs like John Waters edited “Polyester”. There’s something happening all the time. Guitars stepping on Farfisas, climbing over sitars, knocking into Stylophones, tripping over bongos. Controlled chaos.”
