Pale Waves - The Tide

Next step, world domination.
Pale Waves - The Tide

Next step, world domination.

Banger




What’s left to say about Pale Waves? Only a handful of tracks in, and the superlatives are already running thin for British indie-pop’s anointed rulers-in-waiting. With a debut EP due, its third track - a reworking of one of the band’s earliest offerings - shows no sign of letting standards slip.

Bristling in house-coloured neon, Pale Waves’ command of aesthetic is their greatest strength - each new cut fortifying those around it. ‘The Tide’ has all the tricks - that magpied 80s sheen, a nonchalant goth-pop shrug in the face of sugar sweet hooks - but crucially breezes with the confidence of a band who increasingly know exactly who they need to be.

Pale Waves’ days in the shadows of their label-mates and peers are coming to an end. Next step, world domination. Stephen Ackroyd
