RIYL: Midlake, Fleet Foxes

Label: Tambourhinoceros

Caspar Hesselager and Carl Coleman are the Copenhagen-based duo known as Palace Winter, a unique blend of harmony-driven folk music and arena-ready indie rock.  According to Carl and Caspar, their sophomore full-length Nowadays “mulls over the challenges we face just trying to be alive in the present moment in a world full of distraction. You can’t swipe your way to happiness – you have to lift your eyes first.”  As a curmudgeonly 30-something Xennial, that’s a theme I can get behind.  First single Take Shelter builds on a simple piano arrangement with epic Vangelis-style synths and dense layers of vocal harmonies reminiscent of Antiphon-era Midlake.  Super solid track!

As of now, there are apparently only 95 copies left out of their initial 1000 copies on transparent red vinyl.  Check out the single below and get yourself some limited wax after the ‘buy’ link.
