Pale Waves offer an important message on self-love with ‘Noises’

Up and coming goth-pop icons Pale Waves have released a new single ‘Noises’ that offers an introspective look at self-acceptance and mental health. The band released their debut EP All The Things I Never Said back in March this year, along with a slew of standalone singles that caused a massive stir amongst music fans.

‘Noises’ is a bass-driven banger, featuring glittering synths that sit above mellow, sultry vocal melodies. Its sleek production…hits especially hard on staccato palm muted guitar plucks and strums, fit with the perfect amount of fuzz and flanger. The track culminates in an 80s-pop bubblegum teen dream inspired chorus and hits that sweet spot melancholic-meets-dance-worthy sound the band are on their way to perfecting.

Lyrics offer up sage words of wisdom on body image in the age of social media – an important message to young fans who may be experiencing bouts of doubt and sadness.

“Why do I stare so much at my body? I’m falling, I’m crawling on the floor at night I know it’s not right but you can’t fix me this time,” sings lead singer Heather Baron Gracie.

Listen to ‘Noises’ by Pale Waves:

Pale Waves are on their way to totally dominating the next era of indie-pop music – they’ve got Matty Healy’s tick of approval, are signed to The 1975’s label Dirty Hit, and have legions of adoring fans already. Get ready, the reign of Pale Waves is near.
