- The NME Massive Learn: Pale Waves: “I’ve been hiding who I am for so long now. I don’t wanna do that any more”
Premiering on BBC Radio 1 tonight (January 13) as Annie Mac’s Hottest Document In The World, ‘Easy’ began out as a piano ballad, frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie revealed in an interview with Mac.
“I made that decision to change the music because it’s such a positive song within the lyrics; [it’s] about how uplifting love can be overall,” she mentioned, including that the group then got down to make ‘Easy’ “as feel-good as possible”.
Its gothic visuals discover Baron-Gracie sitting in a throne in an deserted church, earlier than being drenched within the multicoloured gentle of a stain glass window. Dressed head to toe in black, Pale Waves carry out ‘Easy’ amongst foliage and blinking white lights.
Explaining the video, which was directed by James Slater, Baron-Gracie mentioned: “I’m really inspired by the gothic medieval aesthetic and at the time I was thinking of the video I was watching a lot of Tim Burton films whose creativity really inspires me.”
Following on from 2018’s ‘My Mind Makes Noises’, ‘Who Am I?’ may also characteristic ‘Tomorrow’, which was previewed by the band throughout their 2019 UK headline tour. Different tune titles embody ‘Odd Ones Out’, ‘You Don’t Personal Me’ and ‘Wish U Were Here’.
A press launch states that ‘Who Am I?’ “acts as the Pale Waves manifesto – inspiring inclusivity, self-discovery, and the notion of being whoever the hell you want to be”. The songs’ lyrics take care of Baron-Gracie’s experiences of melancholy, distraction, and emotions of darkness.
