Palace Winter – Slasher

While isolating at the start of the pandemic, Palace Winterโ€™s Carl Coleman spent a lot of time watching horror films. The paranoia and fear in the movies seemed to reflect the times. Itโ€™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 bandโ€™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: โ€œAfter all the heaviness of 2020 and COVID etc., we wanted to make something fun and danceable. So we developed a beat inspired by โ€˜90s drum โ€˜nโ€™ bass and things like The Prodigy, Portishead etc. Thereโ€™s an element of โ€˜Ennio Morricone and Scott Walker discover โ€˜90s drum โ€˜nโ€™ bassโ€™ about it.โ€ Elsewhere, the band also cite The Verve and Everything But The Girl as inspirations for the song. โ€œWe wanted to mix all those flavours with a horror movie script, and Slasher was bornโ€, the Danish/Australian duo say on their Facebook profile.
