Palace deliver raw honesty and heartfelt healing in stellar fourth album 'Ultrasound'

  • 2 min read

Palace's fourth studio album, 'Ultrasound' arrived just a few days ago, delivering a sonic journey through grief, healing, and the resilience of the human spirit. Born from a deeply personal experience of loss, frontman Leo Wyndham has channeled intense emotion into the music, creating a vulnerable and emotionally resonant soundscape that unfolds over thirteen undeniable tracks.

Opening with the chilling 'When Everything Was Lost', the album is filled with echoing guitars and Wyndham's raw vocals, setting a tone of profound devastation. It's a sound and style that never really dissipates throughout, blending with the lush pop-gaze of tracks like 'Bleach', 'Nightmares & Ice Cream', and 'Rabid Dog'. There's a glimmer of beauty within these tracks, but it's a beauty laced with pain and introspection, creating an intoxicating and familiar mood that will hold you enchanted.

At every turn, 'Ultrasound' shines with the authenticity of an open diary. There's a fragility, particularly in Wyndham's falsetto, that hits every time, blending with Palace's rich palette of indie-rock influences. The album's narrative is raw and unfiltered, rooted in deeply personal grief. It artfully and easily connects to the universal themes of loss, with tracks like 'Son' and 'Lover (Don't Let Me Down)' landing as potent reminders of the enduring strength of love in the face of darkness.

While undeniably heavy, 'Ultrasound' is not without beauty. Wyndham's songwriting and the band's instrumentation are top-notch. This is an album meticulously constructed to deliver maximum emotional impact. It's a testament to Palace's artistry that even in the rawest moments, the music shimmers with a sense of hope.

'Ultrasound' is not an album for casual listening. It demands full attention and the willingness to engage with challenging emotions. However, for those seeking honesty, vulnerability, and music that grapples with the depths of human experience, Palace delivers an unforgettable and profoundly moving work of art.
