The third album from Palais Ideal , ‘Negative Space’, offers a collection of energetic, melodic, guitar-driven, song oriented Post-Punk. The album is strongly inspired by ‘classic’ bands such as The Sound, Buzzcocks, Modern English and Comsat Angels. ‘Negative Space’ appears on their label Cold Transmission Music and features the mixing talents of Pete Burns (Kill Shelter) and has been mastered by Jason Corbett (Actors).
Following cancellation of the band’s 2020 European tour half way through, due to the rapid spread of the pandemic, John Edwards and Richard van Kruysdijk initially felt as if they were ‘in limbo’ – hence the album title. However, this became an opportunity to rethink the band’s sound, and inject a dose of musical and lyrical energy, optimism and hope – much needed in this difficult period.
