Palace Winter – Slasher

While isolating at the start of the pandemic, Palace Winter’s Carl Coleman spent a lot of time watching horror films. The paranoia and fear in the movies seemed to reflect the times. It’s hardly a surprise then that this kind of themes started serving as inspiration for new songs. One of those is out now as the band’s new single.

Slasher is a shimmering track with racing drums, noir guitar, a bar piano and a psychedelic solo. Keyboardist and producer Casper Hesselager explains: β€œAfter all the heaviness of 2020 and COVID etc., we wanted to make something fun and danceable. So we developed a beat inspired by β€˜90s drum β€˜n’ bass and things like The Prodigy, Portishead etc. There’s an element of β€˜Ennio Morricone and Scott Walker discover β€˜90s drum β€˜n’ bass’ about it.” Elsewhere, the band also cite The Verve and Everything But The Girl as inspirations for the song. β€œWe wanted to mix all those flavours with a horror movie script, and Slasher was born”, the Danish/Australian duo say on their Facebook profile.
