WildBeasts have announced their next single ‘Palace’ for release on the 24th of November and yes indeedy, it’s another sublime showcase of the Kendal quartet’s seemingly boundless talent. Not as catchy as previous offering ‘Mecca’ but, to rip off the opening line- In detail it’s even more beautiful than from afar. The cleverly addictive ‘Palace’ is an Oreo of a song- although the intricate layers of graceful, colourful instrumentals expose the power of Hayden Thorpe’s unusual falsetto voice, no one sound takes centre stage and that’s where the true beauty of the track lies.
Foals have even made a remix for them and as you can imagine, it’s the musical equilvalent of a double stuffed Oreo. Not only that but they’ve released a special edition of their ‘Present Tense’ LP featuring a ton of new remixes from the likes of SOHN, East India Youth and Factory Floor…yes please.
