Pale Waves: My Mind Makes Noises Album Review

Pale Waves are the new and upcoming indie pop band that are going to take the world by storm. My friend introduced me to them back in March when I was fangirling over seeing Fickle Friends live (funnily enough, Pale Waves were performing in Leicester on the same day at a different venue). He told me that if I liked Fickle Friends then I'll love this new band called Pale Waves. So I gave them a listen.

The Manchester band is fronted by lead singer Heather who met the Ciara (the drummer) at university. Guitarist, Hugo and bassist, Charlie, then joined along for the ride that is no doubt heading for awards ceremonies in the coming years.

In 2017, the band signed a record deal with indie-cult label, Dirty Hit in 2017 and released their first single, There's A Honey. Through 2017, they released singles such as Television Romance and The Tide which lead to the release of their EP, All The Things I Never Said.

The band have been releasing some great dreamy tunes over the past few months in the lead up to their debut album, My Mind Makes Noises which was released on the 14th September. Their leading single, Eighteen, is a hit that throws you back into a teenage dream state.

This band are one that you'll want to keep tabs on. I can see big things ahead for them. Their uniqueness astounds me and I've never heard a band quite like them.

With their leading single, Eighteen, sets off the album with a dreamy state. The synth and electric guitars compliment each other well and set the mood for the album, packed with emotion, ahead. I was eighteen when I met you, from Eighteen, are the lyrics that set the story for this album that is full of meaningful songs about the break-ups, make-ups and self love that front woman, Heather has released her emotions into.

My Mind Makes Noises is full of raw emotion about self doubt and love. This is a relatable album full of catchy choruses that I'm bound to be singing all day at college (I'm currently sitting in my classroom before my class come in, writing about this album).

Including hit singles, There's A Honey, Black, Noises, Television Romance and Kiss, this album has some real bops on it. Each one has the synthesiser to the max.

It's obvious that the band have been spending time with Dirty Hit brother band, The 1975. My Mind Makes Noises is packed with songs that sound similar to The 1975's style. As The 1975 are stepping out of their I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It era, Pale Waves are taking their place.

The band that have a strong goth-like image have left their black lipstick marks all over this album. It's clear that the band have loved every moment of creating their music and I'm disappointed that I am yet to see them live - hopefully that changes in 2019 since they'll be supporting The 1975 on their UK & Ireland tour alongside No Rome.

Pale Waves have been at it for a little over a year now and have been doing so well and it's really nice to hear their progression. This album screams, PALE WAVES and I'm very excited to hear the music they're going to release in the future.
