Pale Waves docked at the Boiler Shop in Newcastle tonight debuting their latest album, ‘My Mind Makes Noises’. Catchy, upbeat and filled with raucous energy, this new album has got me thinking: “My mind needs more of this!”
Kicking the night off with the highly-rated ‘Television Romance’, the sheer anticipation of the band’s opening was electrifying as we bared witness to an amalgamation of strobe lights, red smoke and guitar riffs until suddenly the band ran on stage.
Fans of old and new Pale Waves certainly couldn’t have complained about the choice of set-list, with singles like ‘The Tide’, ‘Heavenly’ and ‘My Obsession’ being played alongside a number of new album tracks.
My personal highlight of the night was when lead singer, Heather Baron-Gracie shouted: “Let’s have a sad one” before picking up the mic, sitting down on stage just below the drums and pouring her heart out over the song, ‘She’ – it was so captivating, the entire crowd just resonated with Heather.
What an incredible night.
