By now, any doubts that Pale Waves are on a course set for world domination should be firmly set aside. Their ascent to arenas is assured, a growing crowd of devotees following their every mood. It’s not that they have nothing left to prove - simply that there’s nothing they can’t handle.

While their doubters may continue to point out they still exist in the neon tinted universe of their label mates The 1975, ‘My Obsession’ shows the true state of play. While all those thematic tricks remain, it’s other things too. The twinkling, glitter-ball prom night light at the end of an 80s American teen movie, it suggests a lineage that goes beyond a single band. With every new song, the dynamic changes from prodigies to peers.

Creating their own universe a track at a time, each new gem ups the stakes another notch. While those around them play it safe and build slow, Pale Waves are already primed for that debut album. When it arrives, they’ll never take second billing again.
