Video of the Moment #2853: Pale Waves

By on Tuesday, 19th June 2018 at 6:00 pm

Last Friday night, I conducted a small, highly unscientific poll to see what the people of Washington thought of Pale Waves. People seem to either love them or loathe them. I was reminded of several conversations I had while in blighty last month regarding acts who have populist appeal, like Catfish and the Bottlemen: for the kind of music they do, they do it well for an enjoyable night out, but their music won’t change your world. I reckon the same applies to Pale Waves: to me, their sound is just too alike to early stuff from their buddies The 1975 (yes, I know why), their music doesn’t do a thing for me. However, as noted in at SXSW 2018, I’m outnumbered. That’s all right. If this kind of pop delivered in a goth wrapper like ‘Kiss’ below appeals to you, go for it. It’s out now on Dirty Hit Records. For all of our past coverage on the Manchester band, go here.
