This summer is a busy one for Pale Waves. They recently released their new single ‘Kiss’ and are currently touring Europe and are set to play the TRNSMT festival on June 29.
They will also support The Cure at British Summertime in London on July 7 before wrapping up their summer with shows at the Reading and Leeds Festival.
The Dolans Warehouse performance will be one of the Manchester-based quartet’s biggest headline shows to date.
Hot Press have described the band as having a ‘dark pop sound - heavily indebted to dreamy '80s synth-pop acts like the Cure and the Cocteau Twins – which has garnered the young band a cult-like following’.
The band was signed to the Dirty Hit British independent label in 2017. Their debut single, "There's a Honey," was produced by members of The 1975, their label-mates. Along with a busy touring schedule, Pale Waves released their second single "Television Romance" and worked toward a debut album.
Speaking to the BBC recently, founding member and band guitarist Heather Baron-Gracie described the dark tones their debut album saying: “The songs we have out now are very influenced by romance. The album is me talking about a lot of my darker issues. I talk about a lot of things that go on in my mind rather than in my heart".
The Guardian has described the band as “the sort of new band who delight in subverting expectations…. the Manchester four-piece launch into Television Romance, their biggest tune to date (2.9m YouTube views), Pale Waves reveal themselves to be less pale and interesting and more sly and funky”.
Tickets for the shows go on sale Friday at 9am and will be available through the band’s official website. The full list of dates can be found below.
