Afflecks Palace is a four piece indie pop band that embraces jangle pop with its bright and open melodies, chiming guitars, and an overall upbeat tone. There are some clear Smiths influences on their style, particularly in the rhythmic arpeggiation on the guitar, the nimble and melodic bass lines, and the sturdy drums. There is also atype of wooziness to their songs that recalls another iconic Manchester band, Stone Roses. The band is led by vocalist James Fender and guitarist Dan Stapleton, who load their songs with plenty of lively hooks and catchy tunes. They are not complete strangers to putting together songs with fist pumping, anthemic highs either.
