Archpalatine stands out like a bright ray of joy against the darkness in the “Turbulence” video
If you mix theatrical rock with futuristic funk and self-described “soul glam,” you end up with Archpalatine, one of the most interesting newer bands in town. Led by singer and keyboardist Derek Anthony Wilson, the project just shared a video for the song “Turbulence,” from their debut album Amalgam.
Archpalatine can be seen often at gigs around town — but if you haven’t caught them yet, take a look at the new video and you’ll be transported into their whimsical and dramatic world. “We will take the chance to fly away,” sings Wilson with sweeping, operatic emotion, as each band member paints themselves in neon to stand out like a bright ray of joy against the darkness.
Archpalatine plays The Barbary on April 6. Find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
