Atmospheric and moody, Shoals finds Palace in top form. The songs here are as beautiful as the cover of the album, and the soundscapes created stay in your head for a long time after it is finished.
Beautiful falsetto plays a leading role here and in general, all vocal textures go well together with guitar harmonies. It is hard to select singles from such a record — it is one of those LPs that is best listened to in its entirety and without breaks. All the tracks fit, complement each other, and create a strong perception of meaning to the work as a whole.
British indie rock band Palace have returned with the new EP Someday, Somewhere that follows their great LP Life After, released in July last year.
It consists of a couple of unreleased tracks recorded during the last album sessions along with the brand new song “I’ll Be Fine”, made by the band remotely during lockdown this spring. The group sounds a little quieter on the new release, keeping the beautiful melodies and introspective, nearly meditative vibes, which make the EP a short and thoughtful experience, bringing some peace and the feeling of hope to the listeners.
Listen below and get the release on vinyl here (it includes the bonus track “Trouble On The Water”). You can also support the band by purchasing some merch on their website.
