This Sunday, November 11th, Manchester quartet Pale Waves return to The City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection for the third time in the past year.  Last November we met them at our personal favorite bar, Boot & Saddle, and this April they played, let’s-just-say-not-our-favorite-place, The Foundry, and this coming Sunday they are headlining their biggest local show yet, at our favorite mega-venue, Union Transfer.  However, despite a plethora of successful singles, this will be the band’s first visit since the release of their debut full-length (which includes many of those singles), My Mind Makes Noises.  Their debut album is essentially the year’s one pop album that the punks are allowed to like.  Pale Waves’ music is unabashed teen angst pop, infused with a diet dose of the melancholy of ‘80s goth rock and synth pop.  In other words, My Mind Makes Noises is the best collection of sad songs you can do happy dances to in quite a few years.  Pale Waves have also become quite renowned for their live shows, so I would highly recommend coming out to see them in Eraserhood.  In the meantime, check out their recent music video for “One More Time.”
