Handpicked by Jamie T to support him on his European tour next year, alt-blues band Palace are soon to be your favourite pick-me-up but chill-me-out band. The London-based four-piece’s Lost In The Night EP (listen to it here on soundcloud), self-produced at their North London studio, is five tracks of wholesome smooth alt-blues with an undercurrent of old-school rock. Bittersweet lyrics in ‘I Want What You Got’ twist over relaxed guitar riffs with vocals as smooth as butter and pure emotion. Billed as the ‘ones to watch’, they sold out two headline shows at St Pancras Old Church and have just completed their first ever UK tour. Pretty impressive, especially seeing as they only performed their first out of London show at Leeds festival earlier this year. If you’re looking for sweet tunes with a soft, uplifting guitar and gentle vocals, these are your guys.
Members: Leo Wyndham (vocal, guitar), Rupert Turner (guitar), Will Dorey (bass) and Matt Hodges (drums)
Performing April 9th 2015 at Red Gallery, London
