Pale Waves - The latest news & reviews

Manchester buzz band Pale Waves were formed under the name Creek in 20104 after drummer Ciara Doran and vocalist/songwriter Heather Baron-Gracie met in a liquor store and eventually became best friends.

Originally operating under different band names and changing line ups, the band was eventually discovered by British tastemaker label Dirty Hit, home of The 1975, Wolf Alice and King Nun.

The quartet released their debut single Television Romance in early 2017 and gained massive radio airplay in the process. The single was produced by Matt Healy and George Daniel of The 1975 who took Pale Waves on tour throughout Europe and the UK.
