13 Aug Blank Realm – Palace of Love

I hope this summer Australia finally notice Blank Realm in their backyard. The jangly, upbeat, wonky band from Brisbane have been consistently making indie gems for a few years now and they’re getting set to release their fifth album Illegals In Heaven on September 5th.

Palace Of Love‘ follows on from the good form of the first single ‘River Of Longing‘, with a sharp guitar riff that slices the song through any congestion a listener may feel when digesting the cloudy force of the full band. The guitar and the inquisitive vocals of Daniel Spencer serve as a torch to guide Blank Realm to where they know they want to go.

That’s always been the key for Blank Realm, despite having a stumbling sound, you always get the sense that the band know exactly what they want and where they want to take their songs. There’s no confusion about the bands direction between the band members. This quartet just never appear to lose their infectious passion when together.
