Manchester pop rock outfit Pale Waves have accumulated an impressive following since finding a home under the caring wing of The 1975’s Matty Healy.
It’s no surprise, too, as the band shares stark similarities to the aforementioned pop juggernauts (who have also given them a home on Dirty Hit Records), with the blissful pop riffs and melodies straight out of the 1980’s.
And on “My Obsession,” Pale Waves keep the sentimental, often melancholic, pop structure intact. Lead singer Heather Baron-Gracie — who found inspiration for the song by watching her heartbroken grandfather mourn the passing of her grandmother — pours out her soul with dreamy, atmospheric vocals sure to make your soul pine even more for your partner or romantic interest.
If Pale Waves are not yet on your radar, it’s time to catch up, as they are set to have an incredible 2018.
