Pale Waves ‘Change’ x Johnny Goddard

Hot on the heels of Yusuf / Cat Stevens’ ‘Wild World’, Dirty Films’ next music video offering comes in the form of dreamy 90s-inspired indie pop band Pale Waves, with their new track ‘Change’. Though created and shot in line with the restrictions of Covid, Youth Hymns’ Johnny Goddard approached the project with unrestrained creativity.

Pale Waves success since their first album ‘My Mind Makes Noises’ in 2018 has lead to a metamorphosis of sorts. With ‘Change’ they present a fresh vision of their unique approach, ever catchy and always hypnotic.

A story of heartache and reinvention – and a video to reflect that – ‘Change’ captures both the yearning of a love lost, and the sense of the relentless change that we can always rely on for new possibilities. Between butterflies and rain, director Johnny Goddard delivers a dreamy, textural performance video capturing the spirit of the 90s.

‘Change’ was released on Tuesday 10th November after Radio 1’s “Hottest Record in the World” premiere.
