Single Review: Pale Waves – The Tide
Pale Wave's latest single is an indie-pop anthem for the summer come early, Sorcha Hornett reviews
Pale Waves have recently exploded onto the indie-pop scene. The four-piece band from Manchester are probably most well known for their hit single ‘Television Romance’, where the lead singer Heather Baron-Gracie sings of letting some guy down gently and is a pure pop anthem. Their new single, ‘The Tide’, follows suit. Their newest single is taken from their debut EP, All These Things I’ve Never Said, due to be released March 16th.
“‘The Tide’ is the type of song that is meant to be blasted at full volume with the windows down
Despite their indie-pop vibe, their visual look is incredibly unique. A quick glance at lead singer Baron-Carter and drummer Ciara Doran and their look screams Gothic china-like dolls, with heavy makeup and dyed hair, yet their music is a complete contrast to the vibe they are giving off. You expect emo dreary rock music but instead it’s upbeat and infectious indie-pop and I absolutely love the contrast and hope they continue to maintain this image.
‘The Tide’ completely fits with all their other previously released singles and I am excited to see how they are all brought together for the EP, I can assure you though, it will be a masterpiece of indie-pop.
