Au Palais is the sibling duo of David and Elise Commathe. And with the release of their latest single “Thrones” the duo further cements a developing reputation for an electro pop sound that manages a tautened tension between sparse and icy atmospherics and a gorgeous lushness and in some way it sounds quite familiar – to me, I automatically thought of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.” Much like Bush’s signature song, “Thrones” is an arresting song that manages to capture your attention, and it helps that Elise Commathe’s voice is hauntingly beautiful.
