We have some more good news from the Danish indie scene: Palace Winter are out with their 2nd single from their upcoming debut EP called “Medication” due October 2nd, 2015 via Tambourhinoceros – “Menton” is up on Soundcloud and we’re currently dancing around the office to it like fat kids messed up on Monster and birthday cake.
It’s looking like this fall is going to be a great one for good solid indie. The hits just keep rolling in and Palace Winter are definitely one to keep your eyes on. The duo is comprised of Carl Coleman (from Melbourne) and Casper Hesselager. They met while Carl was playing with The Rumour Said Fire a few years back, and a musical and real-life friendship turned eventually into a collaboration that may be greater (definitely different) than their respective parts.
Mixing Carl’s ethereal voice and Casper’s synth skills with both of their indie cred has proved to be a worthwhile ‘project’ – and the results apparently being collected into an EP for the masses. It’s both dancey and jangly, wistful and punchy at the same time. “Menton” seems the perfect mix between guitar driven indie and synth based pop – neither seems to fight or pull in the other’s direction but sits perfectly in a balance.
Check out their other tunes on their Soundcloud profile, and their upcoming shows at Amfiscenen on September 4 in Aarhus and at Studenterhuset, Aalborg on 22/10 – let’s hope we hear more from this collaboration in the near future.
