Up-and-coming Danish act Palace Winter is clawing their way closer to the top with their new single Menton.
The band’s latest offering is a six minute opus named after a place where it all started – Menton, south of France in an old hotel named Palace Winter. By switching the two words around Australian singer-songwriter Carl Coleman and Danish producer and pianist Caspar Hesselager found their identity in it and so the duo Palace Winter was born. “One of the reasons working with Carl is great, is that his background is totally different from mine, yet we still seem to end up musically in a place where we really enjoy being,” explains Caspar.
This musical place has certain ethereality to it; the kind you would find in the music of The War on Drugs and Kurt Vile. It’s the type of indie rock that will calm your nerves, lighten up your car ride and make the sun seem brighter. The lyrics play a secondary role here, since it’s the effortless melody that carries all the weight and paints the narrative. With two strong singles under their belt, the future looks pretty bright for Palace Winter.
