With its unprecedented twists and turns that unreel in a dreamlike haze, the progressive and kaleidoscopic first foray from Portsmouth newcomers Sad Palace is an emphatic and hook-packed statement of intent for fans of Temples and Tame Impala.

The debut single from the south coast band is solid gold from the get-go, built on a string of swaggering bass notes that ape the Arctics circa-‘AM’ and a shimmer of shiver-inducing six-string that flickers like light on a pavement puddle.

‘Rainbow Melt’ proceeds to roam in an unleashed and exploratory fashion from there on, before culminating in a proto-baggy jam that echoes The Stone Roses at their scintillating best.

Big and bold, the foursome sound fully-formed and ready for anything.
