Pale Waves are back with "Easy", the third single to be shared from their highly-anticipated second album Who Am I?.
Lead vocalist Heather Baron-Gracie describes the new track as "a song about how love can change your whole entire perspective on life itself. It’s saying ‘being in love with you is so easy, you finally make sense in my life because nothing did before'."
The new single is accompanied by a James Slater-directed video that shows Baron-Gracie performing at a Tim Burton/medieval-style wedding in an abandoned church. Baron-Gracie adds, "I wore a wedding dress throughout and we shot the video in an old abandoned church. I’m really inspired by the gothic medieval aesthetic and at the time I was thinking of the video I was watching a lot of Tim Burton films whose creativity really inspires me."
Who Am I? was largely recorded in LA with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters, Sigur Rós), but when the COVID-19 pandemic hit Pale Waves were forced to finish the album virtually, with lead singer Heather Baron-Gracie and drummer Ciara Doran remaining in LA while guitarist Hugo Silvani and bassist Charlie Wood recorded and sent their parts from back home in the UK.
Pale Waves' second album will follow their 2018 debut LP My Mind Makes Noises.
Baron-Gracie says of their upcoming album, "For me, music and art is for people not to feel so alone and isolated. I want to be that person my fans look up to and find comfort in."
