Reliably informed

The Pale White return with a new six-track EP full of firework distortion, whiplash mood swings, beautiful melodies and a perfectly captured wildness. For a three-piece, the sound on the EP is kaleidoscopic. There are moments where myriad guitar parts all meld, lead howls over layers of fuzz, subtle chorus whorls, that evoke the complex cornucopia of Siamese Dream.

There are moments where chord sequences confound the ear, and a couple of lyrical moments which mirror the self-aware wryness of the Arctic Monkeys, but these are offset by the band’s penchant for the quiet-loud-quiet grunge aesthetic. This bend of sounds makes each song a self-contained rock opera with enough intricate sonic nooks and crannies to keep you exploring for multiple listens.
