Words: Saam Das
Mancunian quartet PALE WAVES have been bubbling under for a year or so, previously as Creek, and now they're making a splash (...sorry) with their latest track 'The Tide'. Taking on more of a polished note than the demo of 'Lust' that caught the attention of some early adopters in 2014, 'The Tide' takes some of the vibrant sounds that have led the likes of The 1975 and Peace to popularity.
While sparkling indie may be their new forté, PALE WAVES aren't afraid of showing off more pop-based influences, as their live cover of Destiny Child's 'Say My Name' shows below. That unblushing attitude plus the longing vocals of Heather Baron-Gracie make PALE WAVES one to watch for the future.
