Introducing Paltsa-Kai Salama: listen/watch Ran Out Of Love

Black Lizard frontman Paltsa-Kai Salama announces solo release

For those of you familiar with the work of proto-punk band Black Lizard, interest in the debut single from Lizard frontman Paltsa-Kai Salama should be piqued. Citing influences as diverse as Grateful Dead, Crosby Stills & Nash and 1970’s infused country pop, Salama serves up a different variety of retro sounds usually associated with his band. Debut single Ran Out Of Love demonstrates Salama’s talent for appropriating influences from different era’s yet making pop music that feels fresh and contemporary. A sweet melody punctuated by a keen acoustic guitar motif leaves us dreaming of warmer times.
