These four kindred spirits floated away & washed up on shore the next morning bound together by love, loss, regret, intention and most of all, hope- that life’s not over just because it changes.
Their hearts skipped.....The Palpitations this time were beats of hope.

Omer was an indie kid who wanted to be a rock star. Carole was a clubber who wanted to be something between a mega DJ and Kylie. He came from Israel to London. She came from France to London. Now they are Young Paul.

"Once again, Broccoli Music took over the upstairs room at The Old Queen's Head for their successful 'Pull up the Roots' night. The concept is to break new bands in the capital in slightly more comfortable surroundings than is the norm. Entry is free, and punters more often than not find themselves lounging in one of the venue's comfy chairs veiwing the stage, adding a certain living room vibe to the whole affair".
“Set in the bohemian, chandelier sprinkled lounge upstairs at The Old Queens Head, Broccoli’s newest offering to the live circuit captures fiery new talent in support of their latest releases. Intimate rock n roll done good”
