Copenhagen-based alternative rock duo Palace Winter’s new tune “Empire” is couched in a remarkably full-sounding and embracing sound as well as a catchy-as-all-hell vocal melody.

It sways around like a glorious classical overture blended with all the arena readiness of a Bruce Springsteen concoction and doused in the more modern, instrumentally layered touches of indie darlings like The War on Drugs.

Palace Winter’s album Nowadays, their first full-length effort since 2016, is set for a release in May.
