In the last six months, Palace have ridden a wave of overwhelming critical and fan support. Last October, they released their debut EP ‘Lost in the Night’, which garnered daytime spins on BBC Radio 1, a ‘Next Hype’ from Zane Lowe and a session with Huw Stephens, and they found fans with 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and XFM’s John Kennedy.

Palace

Following the huge success of their debut EP, London-based band Palace return with ‘Kiloran’, the first single from their forthcoming EP ‘Chase The Light’ on 8th June and two SOLD OUT shows at the Red Gallery, Shoreditch.

In the last six months, Palace have ridden a wave of overwhelming critical and fan support. Last October, they released their debut EP ‘Lost in the Night’, which garnered daytime spins on BBC Radio 1, a ‘Next Hype’ from Zane Lowe and a session with Huw Stephens, and they found fans with 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and XFM’s John Kennedy.

‘Kiloran’ is the lead single from the forthcoming EP ‘Chase The Light’. Released on 8th June, it 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.

If the subdued atmosphere of their music has had the critics in a lather, it’s the vulnerability of the lyrics which strikes a chord with fans. Both intuitive and poetic, they tap into an inner turbulence most people feel but can’t quite express. ”The darker and more depressing lyrics are more fun to write,” says Leo with a grin. “But I think a lot of people can relate to the idea that life sometimes feels shit and depressing, especially as you’re not really allowed to show emotional weakness.”

Launched with two sold-out debut headline shows at St. Pancras Old Church last October, Palace have won over every audience placed in front of them. No mean feat when you consider these have ranged from lairy Jamie T fans - Palace were hand-picked to support him at his London comeback show, and then joined him on his European tour last month - to topless jugglers to tearful fans. But then as Matt points out, Palace are made for bringing people together. “We’ve had a few comments about our music being good baby-making music, which is nice. It’s sex music, basically.” Palace: spreading the love.

Palace are currently on tour with Ghostpoet. When they finish, they will play 2 SOLD OUT headline shows at The Red Gallery, Shoreditch, the first of which sold out so quickly, they had to add an extra date. They will then embark on a summer full of festivals.
