Manchester’s Pale Waves Will Play The Academy This October!

Pale Waves

Fresh after the release of new single ‘Kiss’, the Manchester four piece, Pale Waves will be playing their biggest headline tour to date, including a night, October 8th at The Academy Dublin. Tickets cost €22.90 Inclusive and go on sale Friday June 8th at 9am from Ticketmaster.

Manchester-based quartet Pale Waves began in the early 2010s when drummer Ciara Doran and vocalist/songwriter Heather Baron-Gracie met at a liquor store. The two became inseparable best friends and spent two years hanging out and working on songs in a very insular manner.

They eventually enlisted bassist Charlie Wood and second guitarist Hugo Silvani to transform their bedroom concept into a proper band. Fully formed, they crafted a dark pop sound, heavy on guitars and the influence of dreamier ’80s synth pop acts like the Cure and the Cocteau Twins.

In 2015 the group posted a few demo versions of songs online, eventually catching the attention of indie label Dirty Hit. Dirty Hit signed Pale Waves in 2017 and issued their debut single, “There’s a Honey,” produced by members of labelmates the 1975. Along with frequent touring, Pale Waves offered up second single ‘Television Romance’ and worked toward a debut album.
