PALE WAVES NEW SINGLE ‘CHANGE’ OUT NOW VIA DIRTY HIT SECOND ALBUM WHO AM I? SET FOR RELEASE 12th FEBRUARY 2021


Fan of British indie rock band? Well, Pale Wales have returned! Formed of frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie (she/her); drummer Ciara Doran (they/them); guitarist Hugo Silvani (he/him) and bassist Charlie Wood (he/him), Pale Waves released their debut album My Mind Makes Noises in September 2018, by which time they had already won the NME Under The Radar award, made the BBC sound of 2018 shortlist and toured with fellow Dirty Hit label mates and mentors The 1975. When the album charted at 8 on the UK album chart, Pale Waves were seen as more than a breakthrough act and instead one of the most important emerging indie-pop bands in Britain.

On Who Am I? Heather Baron-Gracie’s songwriting holds the last few years of her life up to the light, reflecting on her own growing pains – depression, distraction, and feelings of darkness. But also her experience of falling in love, emerging with a clarity and optimism - being more open about her sexuality and stepping forward as the sort of front woman she couldn’t see when she was growing up.

Who Am I? was recorded primarily in Los Angeles alongside producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters, Sigur Rós), before the Coronavirus lockdown forced the making of the album to go virtual, with Heather and Ciara remaining in LA and the rest of the band returning home to record their parts in their bedrooms, sending them back to LA to be added into the record.


The album acts as the Pale Waves manifesto - inspiring inclusivity, self-discovery, and the notion of being whoever the hell you want to be. On the making of the album, Heather says “for me, music and art is for people not to feel so alone and isolated. I want to be that person my fans look up to and find comfort in.”






CHANGE 

VERSE 

I REMEMBER IT LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY 
MY MOTHER DIDN’T PREPARE ME FOR THIS HEARTACHE 
WHY DID EVERYTHING SUDDENLY JUST CHANGE 
WE WERE LAYING NAKED THE OTHER DAY 

PRE 

NOW YOU ACT LIKE I’M NOBODY 
BUT YOU STILL WANNA GO DOWN ON ME 
AND I KNOW I’M A FOOL TO BELIEVE 

CHORUS 

I KEEP WISHING YOU WOULD CHANGE
IT’S NO SURPRISE YOU’RE STILL THE SAME
I WISH I’D NEVER SEEN YOUR FACE 
BUT HEY 
YOU’VE HURT ME A THOUSAND TIMES BEFORE
BUT IM MISSING YOU RIGHT NOW SO DO IT ONCE MORE

VERSE TWO 

I’M BEING SO IRRATIONAL
