Palace Winter is the project that involes Carl Coleman and Caspar Hesselager. Waiting for the World to Turn is their debut album that will be out on June 3rd via Tambourhinoceros (Blondage, Cancer, CTM etc.). It follows the release of their debut EP in the fall of 2015. “H.W. Running” is the new excerpt. Listen below.
“H.W. Running” broadens Palace Winter’s talents as songwriters. It starts out with a driving drum beat that that keeps on going as the song builds up to a monumental chorus releasing the tension of the melancholic opening. The repetitive krautrock atmosphere throughout the song is set to be a Palace Winter trademark. The title of the song is a reference to the character H.W. from the movie “There Will Be Blood” by Paul Thomas Anderson.
The album is centered on themes like restlessness, tension and sleep as Carl explains: “When you’re sleeping you’re at your most vulnerable as the mind wanders off while your body stays put. It is a feeling of the world standing still, and you’re just lying there waiting for it to turn”.
