Pale Lady brings you a fresh blend of energy, smiles, and angst to create a new form of Alt Pop-Rock. Since forming in late 2016, Pale Lady has gone on to win the New Zealand national Battle of the Bands competition, with two members also winning best guitarist. They have opened for international legends such as The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Haken, released five singles and two EPs with critical acclaim, and have had an international tour through New Zealand, Australia, and parts of Asia. Watching these rock fanatics live, you can expect to be immersed in lush vocal harmonies, a one-man drums/keyboard combo, inappropriate bass licks, and guitar solos a plenty.
