Palomar is an indie rock band out of Brooklyn, New York. The band originally formed in 1998; however, Rachel Warren is the only original member still in the band. Palomar has completed national U.S. tours every year since 2003, including a tour shared with nationally renowned indie band Mates of State. Their music has heard praise from various magazines including Pitchfork Media and The Austin Chronicle. The blend of rock music and melodic female vocals create a simple and driving pop sound reminiscent of the more popular Rilo Kiley. After three albums, two on Brooklyn indie The Self-Starter Foundation, their latest All Things, Forests was released by Misra Records on March 20, 2007.
The name is taken from the Palomar Observatory in San Diego County, California.
