PALE WAVES All Ages New Zealand Debut


PALE WAVES
All Ages New Zealand Debut

MONDAY, MARCH 26 2018 – Bristling with dark energy, pure pop sensibilities and new wave synergy, Manchester’s PALE WAVES make their debut appearance in Australia and New Zealand this July.

Fresh from confirming themselves as the band to watch at this years’ SXSW Festival, the indie-goth four piece have announced a run of shows off the back of hugely popular singles ‘There’s A Honey’, ‘Television Romance’, and the recently released ALL THE THINGS I NEVER SAID EP, containing current single ‘Heavenly’.

Forged in an unbreakable partnership between vocalist Heather Baron-Gracie and drummer Ciara Doran, Pale Waves make no secret of their love of 80’s pop stalwarts The Cure and Prince and celebrate a desire for their guitar-pop to accompany both bad moods and dance grooves. “I want to make people dance at our shows and not kinda just cry,”Baron-Gracie recently explained. “They can cry and dance.”

The addictive, floor filling nature of tracks like ‘There’s A Honey’ and ‘The Tide’ prove that these mysterious Mancs owe as much to the fluorescent pop of contemporaries Carly Rae Jepsen and Taylor Swift as they do to ancestors Tears For Fears and Simple Minds.

For their debut trip to this side of the planet, Pale Waves will be taking in several venues on the East Coast and in Auckland, making sure to accommodate their rapidly growing fan base with all ages shows in every city.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
