Bristling with dark energy, pure pop sensibilities and new wave synergy, Manchester’s Pale Waves make their debut appearance in Australia this July.
Fresh from confirming themselves as the band to watch at this year’s SXSW Festival, the indie-goth four piece have announced a run of shows off the back of hugely popular singles There’s A Honey, Television Romance, and the recently released ALL THE THINGS I NEVER SAID EP, containing Radio 1 playlist singles Heavenly and New Year’s Eve.
Forged in an unbreakable partnership between vocalist Heather Baron-Gracie and drummer Ciara Doran, Pale Waves make no secret of their love of 80’s pop stalwarts The Cure and Prince, celebrating a desire for their alt guitar-pop to accompany both bad moods and dance grooves. “I want to make people dance at our shows and not kinda just cry,” Baron-Gracie recently explained. “They can cry and dance.”
For their debut trip to this side of the planet, Pale Waves will be taking in Sydney and Melbourne- making sure to accommodate their rapidly growing fan base with all ages shows in every city.
