New Video Out Today:

Pale Waves – “Kiss”

The diary-entry-turned-mantra is truly a turning point in the song, a point of realization for the narrator that comes a bit too late. The music surrounding the words is dreamy, pop-ish, and are so Pale Waves-esque it hurts (in a good way). The music and words, paired with vocalist Heather Baron-Gracie’s unique tone, is something of the music Gods.

You can find Pale Waves on the road in the U.K. this summer, as well as some festival appearances, before playing with Scottish superband Chvrches this fall. Check out “Kiss” below!


Madball – Released the official music video for their new single, “Rev Up”.
