Pale Waves - Heavenly
Published: 7:34 pm, February 19, 2018

We’ve said it many times, but it doesn't make it less true - Pale Waves are undoubtedly set to be the biggest band on the planet, and there are plenty of reasons why. Big ol' choruses? Yep. Scorching hooks that have you moving about the room in a matter of moments? Most certainly yes.

Yet, above all the check-boxes and ‘things to look out for’ criteria, there’s a sense of magic about them that few bands can muster. It’s why you see thousands pour over every post they put up on ya Twitter feed, and with a raft of bangers already in their back pocket, it was easy to wonder how things could get any bigger. Then ‘Heavenly’ came along.

Already a blistering favourite, it’s now a re-tooled and re-energised heavyweight that fizzes with energy and excitement; a track that in ten years time we’ll still be putting on indie disco playlists. That ability to capture vulnerable emotions yet reach for more is insatiable, like a band slotting into gear with purpose, born for packed arenas. What makes ‘Heavenly’ even more vital? It’s the moment where nay-sayers can throw their worries in a bin, with a band not just infectious but exciting.

The fact Pale Waves are continuing to deliver this big sums things up perfectly. This is a band ready to bulldoze 2018 and make it their own, and now with ‘Heavenly’, they have the piercing track that no matter what the occasion, will be triggering absolute scenes. We’re living in a Pale Waves age now, and that sits absolutely swell with us.
