If you haven’t already been looping Toronto band Au Palais’ debut EP Tender Mercy, we think you should drop everything and visit their Bandcamp page, to take a moment and acquaint yourself.
Elise & David record their music at night according to the page, and that’s probably because being in and touring with Austra keeps them pretty busy. Au Palais has a synth heavy sound overlaid with pure vocals that soar through the intoxicating beat in the EP’s title track “Tender Mercy”.
The EP dropped back in December and since then they’ve been touring with Brooklyn band Caveman and are slated to play the Bowery Ballroom this weekend in New York. We’ll be there, so stay tuned for our coverage, and be sure to check out “Tender Mercy” below.
