But unfortunately they can’t be playing the whole time, so whilst you wait to scream along to every lyric of “Television Romance” and have a dance/cry (mostly cry tbh) at “My Obsession” during their slot on the Festival Republic Stage, we got them to give us a cheeky list of the other acts you should be checking out…
PLAYLIST: PALE WAVES
Your fave goths chat Reading and Leeds must-sees.
Brockhampton – “STAR”
One of our favourite Brockhampton songs that we often play in the dressing room to get us ready before a show.
IAMDDB – “Ooo”
A hard hitting track from one of Manchester’s most exciting new artists.
Maggie Rogers – “Fallingwater”
A really nice song that progresses well and also has a great video to compliment it.
Let’s Eat Grandma – “It’s Not Just Me”
With unique vocals and cinematic sounds this song could easily be from a movie soundtrack.
Sam Fender – “Dead Boys”
We first heard Sam at a festival we played together earlier this summer and this song instantly caught our ear.
J Hus – “Common Sense”
We love the way that J Hus has used real instrumentation to bring groove to this track, setting it apart from other UK Rap songs.
Tom Grennan – “Found What I’ve Been Looking For”
Tom’s gritty vocals and intricate guitars make for a massive festival tune.
Sigrid – “Strangers”
A perfect party anthem with a Robyn-esque dance chorus.
