After releasing their EP Part I - When Everything Was Lost back in July, beloved London-based four-piece Palace are gearing up for the release of Part II - Nightmares & Ice Cream next month with charming new single Make You Proud.

A majestic, sweeping cut of emotional indie rock, Make You Proud features a head nod inducing tempo and atmospheric composition while showcasing Leo Wyndham’s abilities as a lyricist and vocalist. “‘Make You Proud’ is about insecurity in new love,” Leo explains. “Questioning oneself constantly and overthinking at every turn - but still having this incredible patience and support from a partner.

Make You Proud comes ahead of Part II - Nightmares & Ice Cream, set for a December 5 release, with the band teaming up with producer Adam Jaffrey (Loyle Carner, Tom Misch, Yussef Dayes) to bring the record to life. “‘Nightmares & Ice Cream’ is another snapshot of life and moments of the past year,” Leo said of the EP. “It’s Part II of the journey, and one that’s felt very significant. It’s a hazy chapter of intense reflection to past events, but also a sort of purgatory where we stumble forward, stunned, trying to find some kind of grip on reality.
