British indie pop band Pale Waves are on the rise with some help from fellow label mates, The 1975. The four-piece group–comprised of Heather Baron-Gracie (vocals, guitar), Ciara Doran (drums), Hugo Silvani (guitar) and Charlie Wood (bass)–hail from Manchester, U.K. They released their debut single, “There’s a Honey,” in February 2017 on Dirty Hit Records, home to The 1975 as well as Ones to Watch favorite, The Japanese House.
“There’s a Honey” is a beautiful addition to the ever expanding genre of dream indie-pop, featuring heavy lyrics about the potential of a physical interaction between two people. Heather sings passionately of the doubts of her muse’s true motives: Cause I would give you my body/But am I sure that you want me/Am I sure that you want me?
While “There’s a Honey” is the band’s only released song right now, the song has racked up over 450,000 streams on Spotify after its initial release on February 20.
When asked about the future of the band and where they hope to be in five years time, lead singer Heather has big goals for the group, according to an NME Article:
“We want to have a number one album. We just want to grow and be playing sold-out tours. I reckon we can do it. You’ve got to be positive and optimistic. We’re all in.”
Pale Waves just wrapped up a European tour with Superfood and King Nun and will be opening for The 1975 on their Spring North American Tour, which kicks off April 15 in Allen, TX. See all tour dates below.
