Palace Winter

Like their cinematic psych-pop, palaces are lavish, and ornate. Like the themes concealed in their songs, winter is dark, and barren. But unlike some music which wallows in the melancholy, Palace Winter seems to offer a refuge in the midst of it; a party in an alpine castle with an open invitation and champagne at the door.

Based in Copenhagen, Palace Winter’s background also reflects this contrast between warm and dark. The band is composed of Australian singer-songwriter Carl Coleman, and Danish producer/pianist Caspar Hesselager, who have established a dynamic, contrasting style, represented in part by their varied origins.

Subtle contrast is everywhere in Palace Winter’s music. Their music is both driving and dreamy, in the way that the end of the road stays in focus while speeding down the highway, but the trees passing by blur together. Harmonies merge into a single voice, and organic acoustic guitar blends into a landscape of ambiguous synthesizers and electric guitars.

Their first two records Nowadays and Waiting for the World to Turn received rave reviews from The Line of Best Fit, The Guardian, NME and BBC 6 Music, among many others. In typical Palace Winter style, these albums explore themes of death, grief and trauma but always with an unmissable, forward-looking shade of optimism... and without a hint of irony coloring the juxtaposition.

An air of prophecy shades these two albums in the context of our ever-more trying times; if not for their themes, then for their much needed, radiating hope.
