We already know that The 1975’s Matty is in love with this band, but Pale Waves has already captured the hearts of many.

The Manchester Indie band, formed in 2014 by Heather Baron-Gracie and Ciara Doran, that fateful day brought an en masse of fans hooked on their lyrics and catchy hooks plus bringing the niche influence of The Cure to their gothic aesthetic and their sounds.

The band’s status flew into the stratosphere after touring with Matty and co. in the USA and releasing their hit ‘Television Romance’ in September 2017.

Already in the shortlist of BBC Sound of 2018, Pale Waves and an upcoming EP on the way, there is no doubt you will be obsessed with the Manchester band by the end of 2018.
