WHO AM I? features the singles ‘You Don’t Own Me’ ‘Easy’, ‘She’s My Religion’ and ‘Change’ and was recorded primarily in Los Angeles alongside producer RICH COSTEY [Muse, Sigur Rós, Foo Fighters] before the Coronavirus lockdown forced the making of the album to go virtual, with Heather and Ciara remaining in LA and the rest of the band returning home to record their parts in their bedrooms.

Consisting of front woman HEATHER BARON-GRACIE [she/her] drummer CIARA DORAN [they/them] guitarist HUGO SILVANI [he/him) and bassist CHARLIE WOOD [he/him] Pale Waves released their debut album MY MIND MAKES NOISES in September 2018, by which time they had already won the NME Under the Radar award, made the BBC Sound of 2018 shortlist and toured with fellow Dirty Hit label mates and mentors the 1975. When the album chart at #8 in the UK, PALE WAVES were seen as more than a breakthrough act and instead one of the most important emerging indie-pop bands in Britain.
