Palais Ideal – The Future Has Been Cancelled

Palais Ideal - The Future Has Been Cancelled

The debut EP about a cancelled future

'Palais Ideal' cre­ates new wave music for emo­tion­al engage­ment, intel­lec­tu­al stim­u­la­tion, ener­get­ic dan­cing and nos­tal­gic enjoyment!

Constructed from frag­ments of post-punk and new wave. Foundations are provided by vin­tage syn­thes­izers and drum machines. Sweeping gui­tars and vocals cre­ate over­arch­ing struc­tures. Romanticism and stark mod­ern­ism are fused into an ener­get­ic new style.

In design­ing the 'Palais Ideal', John Edwards (gui­tars, vocals, synths, pro­gram­ming) and Richard van Kruysdijk (bass, bari­tone gui­tar, back­ing vocals, synths, pro­gram­ming) have joined ranks with bands such as Editors, She Past Away, Lebanon Hanover, Trentemøller and Ikon, who have also drawn inspir­a­tion from works by The Cure, New Order, The Sound and The Sisters Of Mercy. As musi­cians and pro­du­cers, both mem­bers have worked on pro­jects for inde­pend­ent and major labels and toured extensively.
