The Austin 100: Pale Waves

Pale Waves.

Hometown:Manchester, England

Genre:Dream Pop

Why We're Excited:Songwriters Heather Baron-Gracie and Ciara Doran love to mix elements of '80s pop into their dreamy, sparkling sound, but Pale Waves' songs feel remarkably fresh — in part because great hooks are great hooks, regardless of the era that inspired them. "Heavenly" is as gorgeous as it is infectious, which is saying something.
