Pale Waves are back with a gloriously 90s alt-pop banger, 'Changes'

Grab the eyeliner, Dear Reader. Pale Waves are back, back, BACK!!!

Yep, Heather and co. are returning today with a brand new single - fittingly titled 'Change' - which sees them fizz off into a universe of bright, grungy late 90s alt-pop.

It's taken from the quartet's second album, 'Who Am I?', which is set for release on 12th February 2021 via Dirty Hit, and comes alongside a brand new video.

The follow up to 2018's 'My Mind Makes Noises' - a Dork 5 star album no less - it's described in a press release as an album where "Heather Baron-Gracie’s songwriting holds the last few years of her life up to the light, reflecting on her own growing pains – depression, distraction, and feelings of darkness. But also her experience of falling in love, emerging with a clarity and optimism - being more open about her sexuality and stepping forward as the sort of front woman she couldn’t see when she was growing up."

So there you go.

Recorded primarily in Los Angeles with mega-producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters, etc etc), before COVID-19 hit and forced the band to be a bit more - erm - creative. Heather and drummer Ciara remained in LA, with guitarist Hugo and bassist Charlie returning home and beaming in their parts from their bedrooms. Technology, eh?

You can check out the tracklisting for 'Who Am I', alongside the oh-so-gloriously-90s artwork, below.

Sundara Karma have fast become one of the most interesting, inventive band of their class. With a new EP, some all-star collaboration and an outlook that constantly moves forward, the journey to album three is afoot.

The wait for shame's second album may seem to have lasted longer than it actually has. as they stand on the edge of a huge 2021, we get ready for a record that isn't supposed to be funny, but...
