Pale Waves Talk Robbie Williams and Bad New Year's Eve Parties
EXCLUSIVE! The Manchester-bred group let us into their heads in their MTV Brand New For 2018 spotlight interview...
Heather, Ciara, Hugo and Charlie open up about the drama behind 'New Year's Eve', their childhood inspirations and - what everyone's really wanting to know - when their debut album is coming.
Watch our exclusive Brand New For 2018 interview with Pale Waves here:
Pale Waves may be known for their glam-rock aesthetic and indie-pop sound but their collective influences might surprise you, ranging from Motown to Bob Dylan to the one and only Robbie Williams.
While we're not sure Robbie's influence has come into the music (yet), we're sure the ex-party boy can relate to 'New Year's Eve', the epically relatable tune about a night that didn't end too well.
Lead singer Heather told us the song is about "a night I had that was quite dramatic. There’s so much build up to that one night that it just ends up being a bad night."
"Maybe I should stay in this New Year’s Eve." Or maybe everyone with NYE trauma can come together for a massive Pale Waves gig?
The band are touring the UK and Ireland over the next two months before returning to the US for their own headline tour across the pond, so perhaps a UK reunion would be nice at the end of the year.
What else does 2018 have in store for Pale Waves? Well we already know their debut EP All The Things I Never Said is coming on March 16th but they teased us that the album might follow up later this year.
In Heather's own words, "It's going to be an exciting year."
