PALE WAVES – ” There’s A Honey “

Ethereal dreampop from this BBC Sound of 2018 longlist nominated Manchester quartet, who released their debut single ‘There’s A Honey’ was produced by Matty Healy and George Daniel of The 1975 – with whom they toured the US. 80s new wave fused with rock-fused pop. Their debut EP, ‘New Year’s Eve’, will be released in January 2018.

Anyone who’s been paying attention to the Dirty Hit label in the last year would know that virtually everything they touch is turning into gold. Their roster includes The 1975, whose epic second album ‘I love it when you sleep…’ they released last year; The Japanese House, now one of the hottest new prospects in the game; and Superfood, who recently made a stonking comeback. Any sign of new music coming from Dirty Hit gets anyone in the know just a little bit giddy.

Their latest signings are Manchester indie-pop newbies Pale Waves, and they dropped their massive first single in late 2017  ‘There’s A Honey’ – which features production by George and Matty of The 1975. As expected, the song’s subject matter is strikingly intimate and relatable (“I would give you my body, but am I sure that you want me?“), but is packaged into a chorus that’s so catchy, you wonder how it hasn’t been written before.
