From their upcoming debut LP on Dity Hit/Interscope Records, Pale Waves’ “Noises” is a melting pot of everything good in modern dream pop.
After debuting “Noises” at a sold-out show in New York, the new track is finally available for streamers everywhere. Pale Waves, perfect for fans of the 1975 and the Cure, sound and look like they are directly out of an ’80s cult classic.
“Noises” contains a perfect balance of synth, bubbly lyricism and high production value. After an electric bridge that trails off into an abyss of synthesizer, Pale Waves pick it up right where they left off with an energetic post-chorus.
About the constant push and pull of poor mental health and body image, Pale Waves explore the unfortunate emotions involved with having a potential eating disorder. Scared to ask for help, frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie coons over upbeat instrumentals, making for a melancholy message.
“Noises” premiered on Beats 1 on Zane Lowe’s World Record, making it something you surely don’t want to miss. You can listen to the fiery track below.
