Fair play to Pale Waves for making that John Hughes 'I'm actually so misunderstood' goth at the prom pop. Early single 'Perfume' is a nice bright 80s pop banger with some nice glassy synths, jangle and with a bit of The Cranberries about it.

Acclaimed Manchester-based pop-rock outfit Pale Waves burst onto the scene back in 2018 with the runaway success of their debut album My Mind Makes Noises. Two top five albums later and an outpouring of support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Apple Music, Spotify, NME, and more, the band are back with a newfound maturity to accompany their fourth studio album Smitten.
While Pale Waves’ first three albums focussed on the band’s immediate present, Smitten is a lot more preoccupied with past lives – some more recent than others. Written two years after Unwanted, and after the tour that followed, Heather found herself in a headspace where she could finally breathe, and reflect, like peeling through the pages of a long-forgotten teenage diary and being surprised by what she found. “I found myself writing about not just a certain time period, but my whole life, from years ago,” she says. “When I fall in love, I fall deep, and it’s interesting to me that you can feel so fascinated and smitten with someone and then they can become a total stranger. So I feel like Smitten really summarised perfectly what I felt for others at a certain point.”
An established must-see live band, Pale Waves have sold out headline dates throughout the US & UK in their 6 years on the road. In addition to massive slots at festivals such as Glastonbury and Reading And Leeds they’ve also supported massive acts such as The 1975, 5 Seconds of Summer, PVRIS, Halsey, Muse, and more.
