Manchester’s finest merchants of dark, glittery pop, Pale Waves unveiled their second single, ‘Television Romance’ back last month, as they prepared to take on Reading & Leeds (and conquer they did, read this).
They’ve now shared a video for the track - which will be released on 7” alongside previous effort ‘There’s A Honey’ - and they’ve enlisted their famous bestie.
Yes, Matty Healy of The 1975 is behind the director’s chair for this one, which features the band performing in a flat which looks like it belongs to yer nan’s. No, really. Trinkets and everything.
The band head out on tour next month, beginning at Birmingham’s Hare & Hounds, and including a night at London’s Camden Assembly. Black lipstick at the ready…
