The Line of Best Fit

Though the sugary delivery of much of All the Things I Never Said might leave some with a toothache, it’s impossible to deny how much fun their music is.

Edit: ok yeah coming back to this, it becomes more bland for me each listen. lol

A solid release from Pale Waves and the perfect foundation for their upcoming debut album. New Year's Eve is a stunning ode to loneliness, My Obsession is the centrepiece of the EP though, striking a different tone to the rest of the band's releases.
