Listen to Pale Waves’ debut EP ‘All The Things I Never Said’

The Manchester goth-poppers hit the road tonight

Manchester indie-pop stars in waiting Pale Waves have released their debut EP, ‘All The Things I Never Said’.

Formed in 2014 by singer Heather Baron-Gracie and drummer Ciara Doran, the band signed to Dirty Hit in 2016. Since then, the fourpiece – completed by guitarist Hugo Silvani and bassist Charlie Wood – have become one of the most promising and acclaimed new bands in the country.

The record follows a stream of huge singles for the breakout group, beginning with the attention-grabbing one-two of ‘There’s A Honey’ and ‘Television Romance’ last summer. Those were quickly followed up with ‘New Year’s Eve’, ‘The Tide’ and ‘My Obsession’, which – along with new track ‘Heavenly’ – complete the goth-styled group’s first proper release.


You can order the record on vinyl here via Dirty Hit, or stream it below via Spotify. Pale Waves have also announced a huge London show at Heaven, with their current, completely sold-out UK run kicking off this evening. Check out their full tour dates below the player.

Speaking to NME back in October 2017, Pale Waves spoke of their upcoming debut full length, promising something “intense”.

“With the album, I think we’re just going to show another side to us which is a lot more emotional and not as – I don’t know how to put it… Just, like, a bit more intense,” said singer Heather Baron-Gracie.

In a later interview as part of the NME 100 for 2018, Heather was more vocal about her ambitions: “A number one album has to happen this year. Even if doesn’t, hopefully we can do it next year. You can never be too ambitious.”

Last week, Pale Waves won the NME Under The Radar Award supported by HMV at the VOS NME Awards.

The Vaccines handed over the trophy to Pale Waves at the ceremony, with the band saying during their acceptance speech:”Well, this is pretty mental. This is our first ever award that we’ve ever won. So thank you for your award. We really appreciate it.”

After accepting the award, they took to the stage to perform ‘There’s A Honey’.
