Lately, the indie rock band Pale cannot help but get noticed. Pale has spent the last several years honing their trademark blend of passionate melodies and explosive, guitar fueled choruses. As a result, the band has received impressive media attention, industry accolades, and invitations for several high-profile live performances, including opening for the likes of Depeche Mode, Rodger Waters, and Frank Black, and appearing on the television show ‘Extra!’
The band’s cohesive medley is completed with the honest songwriting and perfect chemistry between vocalist Calvin Stanley, guitarist Robb Moore, bassist Stephen Wesson, and drummer Travis Middour. Stanley’s powerfully emotive vocals are vaguely reminiscent of a Thom Yorke/Rob Dickinson hybrid, yet he creates a sound all his own. Pale belongs in every rock aficionado’s music collection.
Their new 2007 EP, ‘Mandatory Ambulance’, has just begun to garner attention as an impressive follow-up to their 2005 full-length debut album ‘Here’.
