#116: Chapel Club - Good Together

Forming in 2007 after the break-up of two previous bands, little known London outfit Palace spent several months honing their sound and adding additional members to their line-up. Two years on and having been joined by baritone’d vocalist Lewis Bowman, they play under final name, Chapel Club, and release their début single 'Surfacing', earning them airplay and critical acclaim alike – despite the brief copyright lawsuit that followed. Six years down the line however much of the band's previous outings have been discarded. Gone is the spatially aware yet ultimately brooding aesthetics of their début album; instead, sophomore effort Good Together sees the band harbour a much more optimistic and electronically driven vibe that proves to be utterly irresistible.
