Here is what noisey.com have to say about it..
"Palace" remains rich and sensual and the video, directed by Alex Turvey, is fittingly cinematic and David Lynch-level strange. (Seriously, it seems probable that Laura Palmer is lurking in that plastic bag along with the couch.)
Tom had this to say about the video: "The idea of the video was to match the feel of a cheap game show with the content of a rather cruel psychological experiment. The content was unknown to us before the shoot; we were kept in a closed room until we were filmed, one by one, in a single take. What you see is us being introduced to the content for the first time and our genuine reactions to the objects and people involved. We wanted to make something that felt like an event and a sort of project, rather than what passes for a trad music video."
Make Up wise I was the character make up artist so in charge of lots of gunge, blood sweat and tears. Just an average day at the office :-)
