Not to be confused with the early Will Oldham projects that used permutations of the same name, the Palace we’re here to discuss today — the Palace that’s a going concern — is a band out of London making expansive, emotive alt-rock. At the center of their sound is Leo Wyndham’s falsetto, which bears more than a passing resemblance to Jeff Buckley, though I also hear traces of My Morning Jacket and DIIV and alt-J in their sound. As if telegraphing the Buckley influence, Palace’s new song out today is called “Lover (Don’t Let Me Down)” — maybe it’s a prequel to “Lover, You Should’ve Come Over”? The dreamy but dynamic track is the lead single from Palace’s upcoming album Shoals.
