Pale Waves have sparked an early beginning to the festive season by releasing their own cover of Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’.
The Manchester band have recorded their own take on the track for Spotify’s Singles series, but it’s a world away from George Michael’s trademark festive delivery.
Instead, it sees Pale Waves bringing their own brand of synth-heavy goth pop, providing an unexpectedly darkened edge.
It’s also one of the first new releases from the group since they released debut album ‘My Mind Makes Noises’ back in September. In a four star review, NME described it as an “impressive, deft debut”.
