Palliative is a one man synth-pop project from south-east Melbourne, delivering melancholic respite through songs from a dying world. What started as a peace of mind project in 2015, Palliative has been on a long journey before even reaching the surface in search of a sound that treats the symptoms of life, rather than looking for a cure. 

In 2020, with the independent release of the debut EP, Permeable, Palliative has come out of darker times and walked towards the light, bringing in modern New Wave sounds and melody with a lyrical sense of sadness, loss and loneliness.
