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: “After all the heaviness of 2020 and COVID etc., we wanted to make something fun and danceable. So we developed a beat inspired by ‘90s drum ‘n’ bass and things like The Prodigy, Portishead etc. There’s an element of ‘Ennio Morricone and Scott Walker discover ‘90s drum ‘n’ bass’ about it.” Elsewhere, the band also cite The Verve and Everything But The Girl as inspirations for the song. “We wanted to mix all those flavours with a horror movie script, and Slasher was born”, the Danish/Australian duo say on their Facebook profile.
