More Info:

With their sublime second album, Palace has pulled off a rare pop trick.

songs steeped in darkness emerge into the light, from bleak situations spring fresh starts. bathed in the band’s atmospheric alt-rock, the future feels brighter and more optimistic life after is both an album about loss and a manual to move on. “I’m writing this song, to help you breathe again,” sings Leo Wyndham on the opening title track, a shimmering ode to survival. by the epic, seven-minute-plus closer heaven up there, the theme of life after is obvious. “hope,” says Leo. “hope and positivity – seeing the light at the end of a long tunnel. it’s about going through tough times and coming out the other side.” palace didn’t start their second album with any plans in place. buoyed by the reception of their debut, 2016’s so long forever, and near two years of sold-out shows and festival slots that won them fans worldwide, the London-based trio of former Dorset school friends had a new-found confidence that they were keen to capture on record.
