Manchester-based quartet Pale Waves began in the early 2010s when drummer Ciara Doran & vocalist/songwriter Heather Baron-Gracie met at a liquor store. They became inseparable best friends & spent 2 years hanging out, working on songs & enlisting bassist Charlie Wood and second guitarist Hugo Silvani to transform their bedroom concept into a proper band. 


Fully formed, they crafted a dark pop sound, heavy on guitars and the influence of dreamier '80s synth pop acts like the Cure and the Cocteau Twins. In 2015 the group posted a few demo versions of songs online, eventually catching the attention of indie label Dirty Hit. Dirty Hit signed Pale Waves in 2017 and issued their debut single, "There's a Honey," produced by members of labelmates the 1975. Along with frequent touring, Pale Waves offered up second single "Television Romance" and worked toward a debut album.
