Our Perth homie Palais has just dropped his latest single “Chimera“, another taste of his impending debut EP “Apolis“.
Taking a stylistic u-turn from Palais’ bubbly first single/unshakeable earworm “Instant Crush” feat. Your Girl Pho*, this latest production further explores the nuances of his unique sonic universe where upbeat pop, house, hip-hop and electronica meet in perfect harmony. It’s a slow build, and a bassy one, but it’s well worth the wait with a murky yet crisply percussive drop encompassing all it touches, much like a shadow.
“Chimera” officially drops on Friday March 17 with the full Apolis EP out Friday March 31 via etcetc and available for pre-order now.
Oh, and if you’re around Sydney tomorrow, Palais is chucking an EP Launch at Banquet at The World Bar. Well worth checking out imo.
*Disclosure: I listened to “Instant Crush” again when writing this article and now it’s gonna be stuck in my head for at least another 16 days goddammit…
