Palace Winter are from Copenhagen, Denmark, What they say? Dissonance is exactly what comes to mind when imagining the synthesizer pioneers breaking out in Townes van Zandt tunes, but for Palace Winter — perennial experts in genre alchemy — prove us wrong again. Instead, ‘The Deeper End (feat. Jason Lytle)’ has the same driving-through-the-desert-on-a-sunny-day feeling as many country-folk classics, despite the unusual juxtaposition.

“Think Kraftwerk playing a classic country song” says Carl Coleman (one half of Palace Winter alongside Casper Hesselager)

Why we love it? ‘The Deeper End’ is about a bad trip Carl Coleman experienced at some strange house party he went to with his sister but with its central refrain of “But you didn’t think that anyone could take it all away, And you didn’t think that you’d become the one you are today” he could equally be reflecting upon the current zeitgeist. Apparently this is the sound of throttled anxiety, skeletons in the closet, and psychedelic reckoning with cognitive dissonance for Palace Winter’s lead singer.

Palace Winter — perennial experts in genre alchemy — prove us wrong again. Instead, “The Deeper End (feat. Jason Lytle)” has the same driving-through-the-desert-on-a-sunny-day feeling as many country-folk classics, despite the unusual juxtaposition. Contributing a verse of his acclaimed vocals is Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle, perhaps playing the voice of reason to Coleman’s stark mycelial realizations. “There’s nothing more than this, I hate to let you know” he sings, continuing with more harsh truths and trippy pieces of advice. “Another you is waiting at the deeper end.”

The Deeper End’ is propelled along some dusty country road by the energy of Casper Hesselager’s church organ synth theme and the song’s gathering sense of dread is only leavened by the optimism afforded by Grandaddy’s lead singer Jason Lytle’s vocal interjection. ‘The Deeper End’ captures shadows and light to perfection.
