This year has been flying by, hasn’t it? Next thing you know, we’ll be in November, which is a good thing, because that’s when London band Palace‘s debut album will finally be released to the wild. ‘Break the Silence’, which will be available starting on the 4th of November from Fiction Records. The alt-rockers previously shared the album’s title track, a dreamy yet still powerful track. Today we have for you another track from the forthcoming LP.

As its name suggests, ‘Holy Smoke’ is a slow burner, and as band frontman Leo Wyndham explains, it comes from a place of love after loss. “Someone once told me that when someone dies you have to open the window to let their soul escape. The Holy Smoke. This song is about being in that situation which I was, not that long ago. It’s about losing someone close to you, and experiencing something quite spiritual in the moments after death – when by their side.” Now those painful-sounding wails make much more sense. I find the most emotional of music tends to come, sadly, from places of pain. But what a wonderful gift for Wyndham and his group to share such an experience so passionately and honestly. Watch the video for ‘Holy Smoke’ below. For more on TGTF about Palace, use this link.
