Having played Palace Winter's album enough times since my introduction to its album, I understand that the album's opening is very deceptive. The slow moving, electronic and moody song is not fully representative for what's to come. Palace Winter is a hybrid of modern rhythms and sounds, quality pop and some rock edges to go. It's not so strange that the time of the day, my mood or whatever stresses what I hear first or notice most. It clearly decides my reflection on the album.
Palace Winter is a Danish - Australian duo, not a combination that is usual but in a globally connected world nearly all is possible. With a love for spacious music and long drawn notes the music gets a distinct mood that reflects in the songs itself. The music receives the time it needs to develop and grow, like a old-fashioned, slow movie that takes its time to tell a story, depending on strong acting and not special effects and speed.

On ...Keep Dreaming, Buddy Palace Winter aims for perfect pop songs and comes a long way in approaching that goal. In the meantime I may be swung about a little here and there, depending on my mood, but I have made up my mind that this album is extremely nice to have. Even if I switch it off every other time or so. On all other days I enjoy an intro and rocking track like 'Won't Be Long'. ...Keep On Dreaming has found its way into my life.
