Why do we like this?

Palace’s “Where Sky Becomes Sea” is a balm for the weary soul. Lyrically, it’s a poetic meditation on the complex emotions of love and loss, and how they can so seamlessly blend into each other.

While melancholy in nature, the instrumentation, and frontman Leo Wyndham’s weathered, soothing vocals add an engulfing warmth. Wyndham makes use of the exquisite and detailed imagery of the ebb and flow of natural environments to weave an emotive and explorative tapestry of love, and where that love goes when we pass on. It’s a beautiful and heartfelt concept, one which Wyndham dives into headfirst and without fear:

“It’s a song about the heartbreaking thought of being separated from the one you love when you die, but one day finding each other again at a place beyond the sea, reunited forever”.

Musically, it’s sumptuous and soft, with light percussion, and slight, sliding electric edge. It’s effortless and soulful. It’s gorgeous.

Palace’s new album Shoals is out January 1st, 2022.

"And oh, there's colours I'm told

Cushions for breath when you're old

If silence still speaks when we're forests and creeks

There's hope for us yet, that is so

Silver the sun be our guide

To take us to the open wide

If hummingbird wings in our chests as it sings

To carry us into the wind"
