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.

Introducing: Palace

July 22, 2015 in News

“One of our favourite new bands” – Huw Stephens
“An echo drenched sound reminiscent of early Foals” – Guardian

In the last eight months, Palace have ridden a wave of overwhelming critical and fan support. Building on the acclaim garnered with their debut EP Lost In The Night last October, their latest EP Chase The Light was released on 8th June.

Chase The Light is the band’s first release via Fiction Records. Lead single ‘Kiloran’ might just be their most majestic stadium-sized ballad yet. However, its raw reverb-drenched sound only scratches the surface of Palace’s creative ambitions. Forthcoming single ‘Head Above Water’ is a sensual, sun-streaked love song worthy of Jeff Buckley, while exquisite examinations of warring emotions (‘Settle Down’), the power of love (‘Tomahawk’) and self doubt (‘Chase The Light’) come with a subterranean stillness which suggest you’re in The Arch with them.

Launched with two sold-out debut headline shows at St. Pancras Old Church last October, Palace were then hand-picked to support Jamie T at his London comeback show. In April, Palace joined Ghostpoet on his UK tour, before playing 2 headline shows at The Red Gallery, Shoreditch, the first of which sold out so quickly, they had to add an extra date.
