There’s making a statement with your first single, and then there’s laying down the chorus of the year so far.
Pale Waves, the newest signing to Dirty Hit, have set themselves up for extremely big things with ‘There’s A Honey’, an instantly addictive cut that takes all of the pop punch of labelmates and the track’s producers The 1975 and packs it into a few minutes of limitless ambition.
The track’s lyrical uncertainty - “am I sure that you want me?” vocalist Heather Baron-Gracie admits in the chorus - is at odds with its polished finish. There’s nothing uncertain about where Pale Waves are heading.
