The Story So Far
Fast rising through the ranks of the UK music scene, Pacific are one of the most hotly tipped acts of the moment. This fresh and alternative indie band has already been picking up big props from the likes of Mark Radcliffe on BBC 6 Music and have had big success with their earliest releases. These include the piano led EP What Are You Waiting For, which was jam packed with powerful songs and big melodies. It came off the back of their big hitting ‘Time to Forget’ single, another forceful call to action that immediately stood the band out from the crowd. That impressive single lead to their first ever airing on BBC Radio 1 when Huw Stephens picked it up, before eighty more stations also got in on the action.
Rising Through The Ranks
With their music being referred to as “outstanding” by tastemakers in the know, BBC Introducing have long been big fans of this outfit and as such they have played in the studio and featured on live streams there a number of times. Further love has come from influential outlets like Q Magazine and NME. In terms of live shows, the band have performed on stage, and more than held their own, with the likes of Echo and the Bunnymen and Maximo Park, Starsailor and more. Their big melodies, energetic grooves and anthemic sound represents the band’s own hunger for musical excitement and they only promise to deliver much more of the same in the coming months.
