Sure to put more than a little pep in your step, Palace have expanded their realm rapidly throughout the St. Louis scene in the short two years the band has been together.

Spreading their brand of twinkling indie pop across dirty dive bars and pristine mid-level venues alike, Palace makes it a point to make their optimism permeate any St. Louis spot in which they perform.

"I'm Still Learnin'" demonstrates their overabundance of cheeriness and penchant for jangly guitars. The quirky pop of "Callin' It Quits" –- replete with cowbells and kazoos -– bursts with childlike wonder while simultaneously capturing the summery essence of running around a playground.

The ferocity of Palace's guitars and rhythm section keeps the band from dragging its youthfulness about, instead showing talent doesn't have to be wasted on moping around. Palace's signature four-part harmonies kick off "Summer: Don't You Dare" with an appropriate Beach Boys vibe before launching into a melody as sincere as you could find in indie rock. Through this set of songs, Palace reveals that reminiscing doesn't always have to be painful –- it can be a wonderful, flower-filled trip down memory lane.
