I’ve been really excited about this gig for a few reasons. 1. It’s the first time at this venue. 2. I’ve been excited to see Pale Waves the first time I heard their music and 3. I didn’t have to leave the venue early to travel back to my residence. That’s a little for me because I’m always leaving early because of train times and that.
Pale Waves are currently on the radar as the next big thing. With the UK under their belts and tours already done and dusted with The 1975 and an upcoming US tour of their own planned, the sky’s the limit for the group.
Starting the night was Bloxx, a DIY praised female fronted, 4 pieces, alt rock/indie pop band, known to fuse grungy undertones with classic indie-influenced melodies. They were better than I expected them to be. A fun breath of fresh air into the scene on the indie circuit where their carnage was just unleashed the moment they set foot on stage.
Next up were Brighton based group, Our Girl. One thing about Brighton bands is that they just don’t disappoint in today’s music world and this group were no exception to that rule. I’m only gutted that I hadn’t listened to and found them sooner because their energy mixed with the performance only fuels their ambition to the point of which matches their future supremacy. Of course, given time Our Girl will reach new heights and that is a day I can’t wait to see.
Now Pale Waves. this was a thoroughly enjoyable set where they not only showcased their sound to a loving audience who wanted more, they showcased their talents as people for which can only be commended. I’m just a little surprised that they weren’t at a larger venue because they could’ve easily packed out a few different and larger locations for their rising star power. Whatever the reason though, they’re ones to watch for a reason and you only had to be there to believe the beauty of tracks such as ‘New Years Eve’ or ‘The Tide’. What they showcase is their emotion. Here, we truly see the performance and the emotional struggle. We see the connection with the audience the most to the point of which they return to the glory of the height of their set.
It’s a little difficult to place this set, let along the gig in the rankings of what I’ve seen in the last few months but it’s without a doubt after some thought, one of the best I’ve seen in around a year. With Pale Waves closing in on this headline tour, I have no doubt lessons have been learned and that every fan picked up along the way on this tour will come back again and again. Every band has the DIY aesthetic embedded into them and if you were in attendance for this tour, there’s no doubt you appreciate that most of all because what these bands live for is their music.
