Pale Waves, fronted by the gothy Heather BaronGra­cie, are surely the break­through band of 2018. They evoke a jan­gly Paramore while ref­er­enc­ing MTV-era synth-rock faves Tears For Fears. This de­but (which in­cludes sin­gles There’s a Honey and Tele­vi­sion Ro­mance, helmed by Matthew Healy) brings more hooky and heart­felt songs that tran­scend easy emo tag­ging. One More Time could be Pale Waves’ big­gest an­them yet. / CY­CLONE WEHNER
