MUSIC: Caravan Palace rolls into town

Caravan Palace blur the lines between vintage and modern.

PARISIAN electronic alchemists Caravan Palace have announced a show at Vicar Street on January 21 as part of their 2020 tour.

The band have also announced the release of their new sonically explosive album ‘Chronologic’ for August 30.

Following on from the huge success of their last studio album, this could have seemed quite the task for the band.

That album with its fusion of hedonistic house and old school jazz, has now sold more than 250,000 copies and featured the huge viral hits in ‘Lone Digger’ and ‘Wonderland’.

It also afforded the band opportunities to perform on primetime UK TV shows including Later With Jools Holland, The Jonathan Ross Show, Tonight at The London Palladium, and BBC 2’s Hootenanny.

The musical virtuosity of the band combined with their panache, flair and genuine joy in perform-ing live is evident at their awe-inducing sold out headline shows.

Recent highlights include Brixton Academy and Somerset House - and main-stage performances at festivals include Glastonbury, Boomtown, Secret Garden Party and Wilderness.

Not only are Caravan Palace stunning the live scene, they are one of the most viral acts in the digital world with statistics rising at an extraordinary rate.

They have 2.1 million video uploads on TIKTOK (the world’s most downloaded app), 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, 1.1 million YouTube subscribers, and 200 million YouTube plays of the ‘Lone Digger’ official video adding to 479 million total YouTube official channel streams.

The instrumentalists and studio wizards have more than risen to the challenge with this new album, once again pushing their idiosyncratic soundscapes to new heights.

And continuing to blur the lines between vintage and modern. Broadening the sonic palette, the early swing, jazz and big band of previous records now share the stage with new influences including rhythm & blues, bossa and soul, amongst others, while the production and performance are firmly rooted in the present.

Two years hunkered down in their studio have resulted in a record that is joyous, high-spirited and so distinctly Caravan Palace.

For the first time, the band has also invited a selection of superb guest singers to appear in their music, adding to the texture and widening appeal of their sound.

Initial singles from ‘Chronologic’ are already experiencing radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac, and BBC Radio 6 Music, along with airplay worldwide.

First single ‘Miracle’ had its visual treatment from the same animation studio as the legendary ‘Lone Digger’ video, and has climbed to over 4.3 million YouTube views.

The second single ‘About You’, which is also the first to feature guest vocalist Charles X, is has notched up nearly one million Spotify streams.
