PALACE WINTER live at The Bodega poster image

In October 2015 Australian singer-songwriter Carl Coleman and Danish producer and pianist Caspar Hesselager released their debut EP Medication via Copenhagen-based label Tambourhinoceros (Rangleklods, Cancer, CTM). Waiting for the World to Turn (June 3rd 2016) was Palace Winter’s debut album.

The attention around Palace Winter has been evolving nicely since the debut EP in October 2015. Especially in the UK where the single “Soft Machine” was listed on BBC Radio 6 Music for 5 weeks and large media such as The Guardian and The Line of Best Fit have been fans from the get go.

When starting out the duo sent their own bits and pieces back and forth to find their own sound. A sound where the organic songwriting and guitar-strumming of Carl merges with Caspar’s skills as a producer and classically-trained pianist turned electro. The duo compliments each other very well; Carl is somewhat traditional in his songwriting and Caspar contributes with a more abstract approach resulting in the atmospheric, cinematic vibe of Palace Winter.

As a live band Palace Winter feeds of the energy of the audience when they bring their self proclaimed atmospheric krautrock to the stage. It can often be a hypnotic experience with the band’s wall of sound from the guitars and synth creating an intense vibe throughout the show. During the spring Palace Winter have been touring regularly building up to the album release including The Great Escape, Dot to Dot Festival and a headline show at London’s Shacklewell Arms. This summer they’ll be playing key festivals

“Take Shelter” is the lead single from Palace Winter’s forthcoming album “Nowadays”, released May 4th, 2018

This is the second single from the EP “Medication” (out on Oct 2nd, 2015). Produced by Palace Winter
Mixed and mastered by Caspar Hesselager, Palace Winter is Caspar Hesselager and Carl Coleman.
The collaboration was born while sharing a tour bus together for six weeks around Denmark in the Winter/Spring of 2013. Carl was opening for The Rumour Said Fire in which Caspar was playing synths.
They bonded over a shared enthusiasm for anything from Elliott Smith to Seinfeld, Here We Go Magic to Cornettos, Bill Hader to instant coffee and knew it had to result in making music together.

They entered the studio in March 2014 with a goal to fuse each others sounds;
Caspar’s synth-pop playfulness and wide-screen production vs Carl’s atmospheric vocals & traditional singer-songwriter background.

All sounds made & produced by Palace Winter.
Drums – Christian Rindorf
