encore introducing | pale waves

Name: Pale Waves
Genre: Glitter-Pop
For Fans Of: Wolf Alice, Swim Deep, The 1975
Location: Manchester 

A tidal wave of pristine-pop, the colour spectrum of Manchester's newest indie kids 'Pale Waves' is anything but pale. The female fronted four-piece take the tuneful synthy-melodies of the late 1980's and kick out the synth, leaving a guitar sound caught halfway between Manchester and 90's America. 

Marr's melodic shimmer, Squire's paint splattered creativity and more recently, Matty Healy's maudlin cry's,  it's all there to enjoy on new single 'Heavenly'.

"I wanna stay, stay til the end"

It's distinctly Mancunian, and yet lulled gently into the 21st century. Whether clutching to a 3am cigarette with Slowdive on repeat, or dancing wildly to Blondie at their hook-heavy best, it seems the members of Pale Waves have taken on board various muses whilst crafting their sound; and they sound all the better for it. Currently catching the vintage-revival fever sweeping the UK, if Pale Waves aren't the sound to your Summer yet, the question is why not?

Get your vinyls out and stick My Mad Fat Diary back on for one last spin; the future is back.
