"You will keep coming back to this"
The Stark Palace

The Stark Palace consists of Roger Simian (Dawn Of The Replicants) and Scottish underground musician Cameron Jack, who fondly embrace experimental noise with abstract poems, blended with spacerock synths and distorted guitars.

So, it’s fair to say if you are looking for an easy ride of an album, this isn’t for you with its offbeat tunes, clashing guitars, and dada lyrics Simian could well have scribbled during his stint as a psychotic nurse. But in a world of The X Factor, music needs The Stark Palace to challenge and inspire, and boy can these boys play. You will keep coming back to this, if only to decipher Simian’s cryptic lyrics.
