“Beautiful, bleakly shaded tunes that nestle in between emo and retro sensibilities”


“Feels like Palace’s first significant work”


“A spare, appealing blend of minimalist folk and sweeping orchestral pomp”

Part II – Nightmares & Ice Cream EP

Out December 5th

Rabid Dog” is out now, buy/stream it here.

Following the release of Part I – When Everything Was Lost earlier this year, London four-piece Palace return with the second EP in the series, Part II – Nightmares & Ice Cream. Alongside the announcement the band have released their heartfelt new single “Rabid Dog.” Listen HERE.

The EP’s opener “Rabid Dog” is a stunning laid back track soaked in reverb and lead singer Leo Wyndham’s spellbinding vocals. “‘Rabid Dog’ is about realizing that our inner child is always present and part of us,” Leo muses on the track. “In fact, we are still that person, we’re all just older and the vulnerable child is very much still there.”

Produced by Adam Jaffrey (Oh Wonder, Loyle Carner, Lucy Rose) at Unwound Studios, Nightmares & Ice Cream EP sees the band with a sharp new focus. Beautifully hypnotic, mesmerizing and full of raw emotion, the EP is the band at their very best. “Nightmares & Ice Cream is another snapshot of life and moments of the past year,” Leo said of the EP. “It’s Part II of the journey, and one that’s felt very significant. It’s a hazy chapter of intense reflection to past events, but also a sort of purgatory where we stumble forward, stunned, trying to find some kind of grip on reality.”

Childhood friends Palace released their acclaimed debut EP Lost In The Night in 2014, followed by the Chase The Light EP the year after. Now with three albums under their belt, So Long ForeverLife After and 2022’s Shoals and a mass of adoring fans across the world, the band look set to close 2023 on a high.
