DIRTY HIT

After signing a record deal with Dirty Hit in 2017, Manchester’s Pale Waves released their debut single "There's a Honey", followed by "Television Romance". The following year, the band were ranked fifth in the BBC Sound of 2018 poll and won the NME Under the Radar Award at the NME Awards. They now return with their debut album which features the singles ‘There’s A Honey’, ‘Television Romance, ‘Kiss’, ‘Eighteen’ and new single ‘Black’.

Pale Waves are Heather (vocals, guitar), Ciara (drums), Hugo (guitar) and Charlie (bass).

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Brilliantly effervescent synthlines, huge percussion and heaps of reverb sit below Heather's beautiful 80's vox. 'My Mind Makes Noises' perfectly toes the line between melodic indie and swooning synth-pop. Much like Kristin Kontrol's LP a couple years ago, I can see this one sticking in my mind and not letting go. Killer.

FORMAT INFORMATION

Coloured LP Info: Indies exclusive clear vinyl edition.

Visions Of A Life is the follow up to Wolf Alice’s 2015 Gold-selling debut album My Love Is Cool. It is fundamentally a personal album, and one of great growth for Wolf Alice. The album is incredibly broad in range, refusing to be defined by one idea. From the uncompromising 'Yuk Foo' to the infectious ‘Beautifully Unconventional' and 'Don’t Delete The Kisses’, a dizzyingly romantic track which shows their progression and maturity as songwriters. Visions Of A Life is not an album of cliches. It is packed with surprises for those who think they know Wolf Alice. A darker, bolder, more diverse release from the biggest breakthrough independent band of recent years. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Haunting vocal melodies, swirling shoe-gazing guitar flourishes and aching, melodic breakdowns. It's rare that an album flows so well yet manages to encompass all of the elements Wolf Alice are so renowned for. An absolute belter.

12 track debut album from London's Wolf Alice.

While the group's early material was folk-tinged pop, they became more rock-oriented after the rhythm section joined. Clash described the band as "the lovechild of folk and grunge".The "Fluffy" single saw the band compared to Elastica and Hole, while the single's B-side, "White Leather", saw comparisons to The xx. The Observer described their sound as "an engaging strain of off-kilter indie rock".

They now unveil their debut album.
