Palace must have karma (or talent) on their side. Their debut single racked up over 50,000 plays in its first two weeks online, they were handpicked to support Jamie T at his comeback show, they're premiering their new song with us, and this is all before they've played their first headline show.
"Bitter" is the band's second release and it's great - all warm guitars, comforting vocals that will hug your senses, and a departure from the sort of middling lo-fi that usually peppers new band's early releases. This is full of ambition - not a want to piss out a few seven inches and spend a few weeks getting high in a tour van.
Palace play their debut headline show at St. Pancras Old Church on 15 October.
