THROW OUT ALL CLOTHING THAT ISN’T BLACK AND SAD, PALE WAVES ARE BACK.
It’s been a minute. Like, a long one since we last heard our goth leader Heather Baron-Gracie breathe down our ears with some cutthroat words that’ll make me cry into a glass of wine. It’s true.
2020 has been nothing short of horrific and Pale Waves thought, “You know what? Fuck this year. Let’s rewind,” and here we are, time machined back to 2003 with ‘Change’ – a title fitting for their newfound sound that dives into a grungy fluorescence.
Taken from ‘Who Am I?’ – the band’s sophomore release ready to land on February 12th, 2021, both the artwork and three of its song titles (‘Fall To Pieces’, ‘Wish You Were Here’ & ’Tomorrow’) pay homage to Baron-Gracie’s musical idol Avril Lavigne, in particular, her debut ‘Let Go’.
‘Change’s visual view Pale Waves amongst bright, earthy surroundings, angel wings and butterflies; a stark contrast to their former image seen throughout 2018’s ‘My Mind Makes Noises‘. One thing’s for certain and that’s that change is in the air, for Pale Waves, and for us all, let’s embrace it.
