The lilting indie rock beauty of Palace Fires features Matt James (drums) and Steve Mason (guitar), formerly of the '90s Britpop band Gene, along with Mike Buchanan (bass) and Ed Bannard (vocals/guitar). Upon the 2004 demise of Gene, Mason and James had plans to continue working together, but finding the right singer proved to be a trying task. In early 2005, they befriended the doe-eyed Bannard at a London club, and with the addition of Buchanan, Palace Fires were born. Their debut single, the U.K.-only "Nothing Comes Close," was released on Bespoke in August 2006. ~ MacKenzie WilsonPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
