The Resonance main inspirations were the 60s, 70s psychedelic-folk and obscure retro-futuro publications, and besides music at the beginning of the pandemic has slowed everyday life, social alienation inherent and Hartmut Rosa German sociologist few years ago, His book Resonance (in which the author tries to find a solution to the problems of a man in today’s world who is unable to keep up with the pace of an accelerated society, a radical information explosion, and technological development).

Songwriter-singer Árpád Szarvas, after the previous Hello Heavy album and Memories of Spring  EP, worked again this year with the famous British producer George Shilling (Blur, Primal Scream, The Fall, etc.) on the new material, who, in addition to mixing and mastering he also contributed to some of the instruments.

Árpád Szarvas said that “Next Time was the last song that was made for the record, and because of its slightly soulful atmosphere, I definitely wanted a guest musician to contribute to it in some way. I chose Imré Poniklo , partly to reciprocate the invitation to guest guest in Amber Smith's song Straight To Video a few years ago , and partly because I felt that his voice would fit perfectly with this song.

Palace Announce New LP 'Shoals', Stream "Lover (Don't Let Me Down)"

London-based indie rock/alt band Palace have announced the release of their highly anticipated third studio album 'Shoals'.

The follow-up to 2019's Life After, will be out on January 21st 2022 via Fiction Records. Pre-order your copy here.

The 12-track record was written during the UK’s first coronavirus lockdown in 2020, during which forntman Leo Wyndham was forced to confront a number of mental health issues. “I’m one of those people who’s tried to run away from those fears and anxieties, but [during lockdown] I had a real feeling of ‘Shit, I can’t hide from this now’,” he told NME. “My brain was like a conveyer belt of negative thoughts and a feeling of purposelessness. When music was taken away, I started to wonder what the fuck my purpose was.”

‘Shoals’ is a profound and pensive album, boldly exploring some of life’s greatest questions over its 12 mesmerising tracks. The album deftly explores the interplay of three central existential dilemmas against a broader backdrop of wonder at the vastness and power of the ocean, concluding its arc with the stunning opus ‘Where Sky Becomes Sea’. Through diving into themes of the subconscious, dreams and existentialism, ‘Shoals’ is broadly a record about living with and processing fear. As frontman Leo Wyndham explains:

The record symbolises how our minds can have beautiful yet dangerous depths, like the ocean, and how our fears and thoughts are like shoals of fish that move and shift constantly from place to place; chaotic, often untameable and unpredictable.”

Check out the album{s tracklist and watch the video for their new single "Lover (Don't Let Me Down)", below. 

Shoals Tracklist:
01. Never Said It Was Easy
02. Shame On You
03. Fade
04. Gravity
05. Give Me The Rain
06. Friends Forever
07. Killer Whale
08. Lover (Don’t Let Me Down)
09. Sleeper
10. Salt
11. Shoals
12. Where Sky Becomes Sea

From the duo: “We wrote this 90s inspired song during the first Covid lockdown after our album tour was cancelled. It was the same time when we rediscovered Primal Scream’s album „Screamadelica“ after Andrew Weatherall passed away far too early in February 2020. We always loved music that is unclassifiable and this record is such a great combination of genres, we’d never deny it as an influence."

"Obviousm also is a search for meaningfulness in the stupidity of human behaviour. But we still couldn’t find out though. Just keep going!”.
