A Meditative Retrospective
After releasing their third album ...Keep Dreaming, Buddy in the middle of 2020’s Covid turmoil, Palace Winter are back with an instrumental piano EP, warming us up again for their first international tour in 3 years.
In 6 Songs (Solo Piano) (out August 27), Caspar Hesselager leads us on a late night, intimate meditation, playing songs from Palace Winter's past three albums. Included in the instrumental EP is “Soft Machine (Solo Piano)” out now, their signature anthem, reimagined in an ambient form.
Palace Winter has rapidly garnered a name for fusing genres and crafting songs brimming with big, colourful melodies. But keyboardist and producer Caspar Hesselager wanted to deconstruct their them down to the bare bones:
“As much as I love the process of production and building entire universes from scratch for each song, there’s something extremely gratifying about playing ‘the core’, or bare bones of the song on a single instrument. Many of our songs are built from playing acoustic guitar and piano together in the same room, and whenever we’ve had the chance, we’ve always had so much fun just going back and re-discovering our songs in that setting.”
