Divus Julius presents…Palace

Throughout their young career, Palace have pulled off a rare pop trick. Songs steeped in darkness emerge in to light, from bleak situations spring fresh starts. Bathed in the band’s atmospheric alt-rock, the future feels brighter and more optimistic. Palace didn’t start their career with any plans in place. Buoyed by the reception of their debut, 2016’s So Long Forever, and near two years of sold-out shows and festival slots that won them fans worldwide, the London-based trio of former Dorset school friends had a new-found confidence that they were keen to capture on record.

Palace have confirmed details for their second album, ‘Life After’. The record will arrive on 12th July,.

Divus Julius presents…Skinshape

Started as a solo project when he was 16 in his bedroom, London-based Will Dorey, bass player for ex-Palace and co-founder of the reggae record label Horus Records, is continuing to flourish as well as nourish his incredible music. Having released 4 albums, his latest one ‘Filoxiny’, the confidence, warmth, laid-back and freshness of his material considering he plays most instruments, produces as well as records this in his own studio is marvellous and dreamy to say the least.

Dorey draws on various types of influences from Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop to Psychedelia, that touch on different eras, always unearthing tones which are really refreshing. His debut self-titled album in 2014 had some brilliant tracks from a soothing, psychedelic combo which blend together perfectly.

Music by Bergman: ISLAND

ISLAND are not yet a household name, but with some releases so far, it can’t be long for these boys, who have already supported Palace, The Bohicas, and Amber Run, the majority of these being sold-out shows.

The band have a very similar sound to The Kooks of yore. ISLAND’s Rollo Doherty, vocalist and frontman of the band, has a vocal sound similar to that of Luke Pritchard (The Kooks). The sound of the band is a nice colourful soundscape; something that fills you with instant joy.
