Single Review – Pale Waves – My Obsession

In new single My Obsession, Pale Waves bring together gravelly pop-punk vocals to glistening indie chimes to create something both emotive and musically brilliant. Recalling 2017-era Paramore and Clean Cut Kid, The 1975’s Matty Healy put his stamp on the ethereal synth undulations the verses are built upon, before the startling guitars slice into the chorus. And while the song is predominantly floaty and mysterious, there’s no denying the fervour behind the crisp voice of Heather Baron-Gracie, nor the bitter strikes of guitar. My Obsession’s release comes prior to the launch of EP New Year’s Eve, and this hearty, twinkling ballad promises a tracklist to look out for.
