In late 2014 Palace released their debut EP ‘Lost in the Night’, which garnered an overwhelming amount of critical and fan support, with the NME proclaiming, “the award for the fastest rise of 2014 goes to Palace.”
2015 saw them embark on two UK and European tours that book-ended the release of their second EP ‘Chase The Light’, which received continued support from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Annie Mac, 6Music’s Steve Lamacq and XFM’s Georgie Rogers, Maz Tappuni, John Kennedy and Jo Good. They spent last summer in a whirlwind of festival performances including Live at Leeds, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Blissfields, Kendall Calling, Glastonbury, Greenman and Bestival, to name just a few.
In the autumn they returned to The Arch – a creative nerve centre in deepest, darkest Tottenham packed with young artists, designers and musicians – to write their debut album, due for release this autumn.
“The Arch is damp and it’s dark, and it’s on a meter - so you never know when the lights will go off,” explains Leo of their grungy outpost of bohemia in London’s over-mortgaged heart. “But the atmosphere of the place seeps into the music.”
