One band to get onto your radar is South Coast quartet Sad Palace who have unveiled their latest single, ‘Melody Crux’.
Brimful of grooving attitude, the single is a continuation of the icy pop beats that Sad Palace have already made their name with, just three releases into their musical career.
Fizzing organs and piercing alt.rock guitars sit atop jazzy breaks, delivered seamlessly by the rhythm section, whilst imperious vocals deliver commanding hooks, breaking at times into infectious falsetto.
If the track is channelling late night vibes, the band said: “Most of the lyrics were written on a night out, sometimes you go out partying for the night when you really shouldn’t.
“It’s a weird feeling, being out dancing and drinking, and then realising you’re just not in the mood.
“The music stays really upbeat as the words slowly deteriorate with the night, because the night doesn’t care about your feelings, it goes on anyway.”
With online acclaim building, invites to perform at the exclusive Sofar Sounds sessions and another glacial diamond under their belt, Sad Palace look set to break beyond their small town constraints, possessing the creativity and ambition to level-up to national indie stalwarts.
