Dutch for “palm trees”, Palmbomen appropriately delivers a tropical escape from the mundane. Kai Hugo’s music is as experimental as it is contagiously poppy. Haunting vocals and hypnotic synth lines produced by desolated studio equipment create an atmospheric sound that, according to somewhere between 80's italo and 60's psychedelia. A custom built quasi epileptic light show completes the sensation of being lost in a neon Amazon forest.

Kai’s debut ‘Moon Children EP’ was released july 2010 on NON Records and showcases the uniquely eery sound of Palmbomen.
