Pale Waves give us a taste of the future with stunning performance at VO5 NME Awards 2018

Pale Waves have had a pretty marvellous year. This time last year they released their debut single ‘There’s A Honey’, in June they supported The 1975 at New York’s Madison Square Garden and by October they had their first NME cover. Not bad stuff.

After picking up The NME Under The Radar Award supported by HMV earlier this evening, the Manchester four-piece brought it full circle by performing their debut single live at the VO5 NME Awards 2018. Here’s what down.
