Walking into the intimate venue that is Hoxton Hall, we were met with a wave of excitement and anticipation as Palace were about to take to the stage.
Cheering and wooing rung out as the three-piece clambered onto the small stage. Launching into So Long Forever, within seconds the crowd members began dancing and singing every word back. Fusing their jangly guitar melodies, deep bass lines, and lead singer Leo Wyndham‘s soulful vocals during It’s Over, we were left mesmerised. Not only were we treated to faster-paced gems such as Bitter and Live Well, Palace gave us the ‘so quiet you could hear a pin drop’ moments.
Since their debut album in 2016, Palace have kept quiet about their new music, yet the 200 odd people that came out to Hoxton Hall last week were in for a treat. Palace announced their newest single Heaven Up There and we were even able to hear it two hours before release, LIVE. This was truly a special moment during their set; the whole room stood still, listening, and absorbing the haunting sounds as Leo Wyndham‘s vocals filled the room.
If you ever get the chance to, make sure you see Palace live. They’re one you cannot miss!
