PALACE WATSON: LIVE FROM THE AFTERLIFE
Palace Watson takes the stage at the Servant Jazz Quarters on the eastern side of London Town to debut songs from his debut EP ‘The Living Room’.
Palace Watson’s new single follows last month’s release of “Buried”, which was successfully featured on the likes of Spotify’s Discovery playlist, and Ones To Watch Now Watching playlist. “Buried” also opened BBC Radio 1’s Introducing show last week. With this new track Palace further demonstrates his unique ability to deliver music that is in its own lane entirely.
Palace candidly opens up about the thought process behind the track, expressing that; “La La La (La La La) is a song about feeling trapped. The verses describe a person’s subsistence in a very matter of fact manner, and choruses mockingly comparing the characters extreme malaise with general motion of the day, ‘dinner on the table, hosepipe in the car’ and a middle 8 asking difficult questions of what they can expect from death all sung over the unsettlingly optimistic nursery rhyme melody of La La La (La La La).”
There are multiple intricate layers which make up the song as a whole, and brings it to life with all the quirks and eccentricities unique to Palace’s sound. Building up to a ferocious climax, “La La La” reveals many unexpected twists and turns, as it is always something out of the ordinary with what Watson delivers. The track was created whilst Palace was dealing with feeling confined and saturated by his own thoughts.
“La La La” is one of many new songs to continue to come from Palace this year, with his EP “The Living Room” out this September.
