A good friend recently introduced us to the very new Brighton based band Palace and we immediately feel in love with their bluesy throwback soul.
The find couldn’t come at a better time with those long summer evenings fast approaching.
We don’t know much else yet but we know you’ll be equally hypnotised.
Remember where you heard them first.
