WATCH: Palace – ‘Head Above The Water ‘

July 28, 2015 in News

North London band Palace have had a rapid rise to fame since their debut EP Lost In The Night was released in 2014 winning fans in Radio 1′s Huw Stephens and picking up praise from NME and The Guardian. Now, signed to Fiction Records, they are giving their colourful indie track ‘Head Above The Water’ some abstract video treatment.

Director Oliver Hadlee Pearch says:

“When you are swept up by a wave, you are caught underwater. Not knowing which way is up or down left or right. This was sort of the starting point for this video. This idea of confusion. Concussion even. Dreams played a big part in this film. How many different scenes can sit side by side harmoniously. I wanted to try and create mini narratives which all lead the same way yet are completely removed from each other. Tied together. Across the video we want the audience to be hypnotized, drawn in yet not knowing why or how”

Palace’s Chase The Light EP is out now. ‘Head Above The Water’, a sensual, sun-streaked love song worthy of Jeff Buckley, will be released as a single on September 7th via Fiction Records.
