Chase the Light is the name of the new EP from UK based band Palace. Released on June 5th, the 5 tracks take you on a very atmospheric, floating wave of echoing harmony and lush melodies. It’s like stepping through a dreamy forest at dusk, reminiscent of Fleet Foxes. Head Above the Water is one of my particular favorites due to the seamless blending of lead vocals with a tempo that kicks up and then winds back down gradually. It feels very moody at times, but strikes a perfect balance without being overly somber.
The band is preparing to embark on a tour across the pond, and hopefully they’ll be able to come stateside soon. Their live performance is one that I would love to witness, and the songs feel like they were made to be played to a live audience.
