Pale Waves have released a music video for their new single “Easy.”
Directed by James Slater, the video features the band playing in a run-down cathedral while frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie plays the role of the beautiful gothic bride. It’s a stylish performance video that gives off macabre, Adams Family vibes that taps into your inner goth side.
“Love can change your whole perspective, not only of yourself but of life too,” says Baron-Gracie on the inspiration for the single. “It’s the most heartfelt moment throughout the album and it is a genuine, feel-good love song. Originally, ‘Easy’ was a piano ballad but I wanted to put more energy behind the instrumentation to enhance how love can uplift, drive, and inspire you hence the dramatic musical change.”
“The video visually brings to life one of the main lines of the chorus ‘you keep the lights on for me,’” continues Baron-Gracie. “The whole video’s theme is a wedding, I wore a wedding dress throughout and we shot the video in an old, abandoned church. I am 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. His creativity really inspires me.”

Pales Waves’ new album, Who Am I? comes out on February 12th.
