“The award for the fastest rise of 2014 goes to Palace.” – NME
“It’s darkly beautiful, with twilight seeming to break through every note.” – CLASH
“It’s a romance-bloomed introduction of the highest order.” – DIY
“It will hug your ears with its warm guitars and comforting vocals…full of ambition.” – Noisey
“Their blend of spot-on vocals, soulful, vintage-sounding blues and David Lynch-esque guitars has not only won fans in our office, but flattering comparisons with Foals and Buffalo Springfield.” – Esquire Weekly
“A heady piece of subtly anthemic guitar rock.” – Wonderland
Fast-rising London newcomers Palace share their video for ‘Bitter’ today. Directed by Liam Saint-Pierre, it stars newcomers Hera Hilmarsdóttir and Edward Holcroft and was shot in the wild forests of northern England. Loosely based on the story of Adam and Eve, it takes inspiration from the track’s dark lyrical themes of obsession and desire.
Palace recently announced a UK tour this Autumn in support of their debut EP Lost In The Night, which comes out on 20th October via tastemaker label Beatnik Creative. They have already sold-out their debut headline shows at London’s St. Pancras Old Church.
Handpicked by Jamie T to support him at his comeback show in Tufnell Park, Palace are quickly making a name for themselves as ones to watch.
Debut track ‘Veins’ racked up 50,000 streams in its’ first two weeks online and new single ‘Bitter,’ had over 20,000 streams in its’ first week online – they’re currently close to 200,000 combined plays.
They recently had their first daytime play at BBC Radio 1, which follows from Zane Lowe making ‘Veins’ ‘Next Hype’ and support from Phil Taggart and Alice Levine, Lauren Laverne at BBC 6 Music and John Kennedy at XFM.
The Lost In The Night EP was self-produced and engineered at their north London studio.
