The bands new single ‘You Don’t Own Me’ is out now, taken from their second album Who Am I?. which was released on February 12.

Formed of frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie (she/her); drummer Ciara Doran (they/them); guitarist Hugo Silvani (he/him) and bassist Charlie Wood (he/him), Pale Waves released their debut album My Mind Makes Noises in September 2018, by which time they had already won the NME Under The Radar award, made the BBC sound of 2018 shortlist and toured with Dirty Hit label mates The 1975.

When the album charted at 8 on the UK album chart, Pale Waves were seen as more than a breakthrough act and instead one of the most important emerging indie-pop bands in Britain.

The new album Who Am I? was recorded primarily in Los Angeles alongside producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters, Sigur Rós), before the Coronavirus lockdown in 2020 forced the making of the album to go virtual, with Heather and Ciara remaining in LA and the rest of the band returning home to record their parts in their bedrooms.

    In late 2020, Pale Waves returned with their comeback single ‘Change’ and ‘She’s My Religion’ - another deeply personal single for frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie.

    The latest single ‘You Don’t Own Me’, the band’s first single of 2021, premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show as a Hottest Record. Heather said: “For me, music and art is for people not to feel so alone and isolated. I want to be that person my fans look up to and find comfort in.”
