Manchester band, Pale Waves have dropped their bittersweet, 80’s sounding single.
The band has announced their third single “New Year’s Eve” as well as details of a UK and European headline tour for 2018.
The track captures the crux of indie-pop with a catchy chorus that you can’t stop yourself from singing-a-long too: “I don’t wanna be alone on New Year’s Eve/ Do you even wanna be with me?”
With a heavy The 1975 sound, with glistening 80s synth, it almost sounds quite festive, getting you in the new year spirit.
Although their previous songs such as “Television Romance” and “There’s A Honey” sound dreamy, with soft vocals from frontwoman Heather, they have a dark element to them that juxtaposes their sound (“You found me outside looking like somebody died”), which makes them different from so many upcoming bands.
Check out the video for ‘New Year’s Eve’ below :
The quartet has just come off tour in America with The 1975 and they’ve announced exciting details of a UK and European headline tour for spring 2018 playing small intimate venues across the continent.
