Pale Waves - "There's A Honey" (Song Review)
"There's A Honey" basically lives up to all those expectations. The band wear those 80s post punk/pop influences heavy in their music in a similar way that The 1975 do. The production duo of Matty and George probably complimented them extremely well as both bands share some similarities. Where Pale Waves really stands out as a group that's destined to make their own mark on the indie scene is the very good vocal performance of Heather Baron-Gracie. She adds a lot to the overall song and helps it rise above just being a group that sound eerily similar to The 1975. That's not to say that the band doesn't bring it. The track has great guitar work and nice sounding drums. I'm just saying being on the same label and having production by The 1975 will get them compared by many and I think Baron-Gracie's vocals will give them that extra push to show they can stand on their own feet just fine.
