The goth meets indie-pop quartet that packs a punch
Hailing from Manchester, Pale Waves formed in 2014. Known for delivering a heady mix of electro-pop and indie, the group is fronted by the enigmatic Heather Baron-Gracie alongside drummer Ciara Doran, guitarist Hugo Silvani and bassist Charlie Wood.
Inspired by the likes of Blue Nile, The Cranberries, Avril Lavigne and Prince, whose song Purple Rain they’ve called one of their all-time favourites, the four-piece recorded some demos in 2015 that got them noticed and signed by Dirty Hit two years later.
In 2017, Pale Waves scored a couple of hits for their record label right out of the gate with the debut single There’s A Honey and follow-up track Television Romance. That year the quartet also played the BBC Music Introducing Stage at Reading & Leeds and supported label bandmates The 1975 while touring North America.
When new year kicked off, Pale Waves made the BBC Sound Of 2018 shortlist and later received the NME Under The Radar Award – plus they graduated to the Festival Republic Stage at Reading & Leeds that summer. The band released their debut album, My Mind Makes Noises, in autumn and saw it reach No.8 on the official UK albums charts. Full of angst and layered synths, it was widely praised by critics.
The Mancunian bunch confirmed their second album Who Am I? would arrive on 12 February 2021. Recorded with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters, Sigur Rós) in Los Angeles and also virtually while the band was separated during coronavirus lockdowns, the record features the singles Change, You Don’t Own Me, Easy and She’s My Religion as well as touches upon themes of growing pains, mental health, inclusivity, sexuality and self-discovery.
On 5 February 2021, Pale Waves announced a UK tour for February and March 2022, kicking off in Bristol and culminating with a big hometown show in Manchester.
