Close your eyes, press play on the new Palace Winter song “Take Shelter” and feel instantly teleported to another dimension. When you’ll open my eyes, it’s just you and the song. It gives comfort and cathartic feeling which we all need at the grey beginning of the year.
Palace Winter came back with “Take Shelter” in style. The song really made us longing for May, for two reasons – it will be spring (sun!) and the duo will release their new album “Nowadays” on the 4. May 2018. If all of the songs will be as atmospheric as the single, we are up for a real musical treat.
I always liked the piano sound in Miike Snow songs and I have similar feelings regarding Palace Winter‘s new song “Take Sheler” when I hear the gentle piano tunes mixed with delicate electronic beats and two lines of vocals blending into the whole thing with grace. “Take Shelter” covers the listener with an amazing combination of the waterfall of sound and thoughtful lyrics. There is something very intimate, as well as something huge in it.
On Good because Danish we often use a phrase “Danishness” to describe the music from Denmark. Even though Palace Winter is only 50% Danish (and 50% Australian, also a great and slightly overlooked place music-wise), we feel that Carl Coleman really feel the earlier mentioned Danishness in his blood by now. Why? Because together with Caspar Hesselager they bring this special kind of sadness, which isn’t a despair, into Palace Winter music.
While listening to “Take Shelter”, tones of images and emotions go through the listener in waves, giving the feeling that we are just guests in this world, that everything is temporary, but at the same time each of us can find our place and purpose in life.
Listen to the song and don’t miss the Palace Winter’s spring tour.
