Pale Waves have signed a deal with Interscope in the USA, Dirty Hit founder Jamie Oborne has told Music Week.
The joint venture was sealed earlier this year, before the Manchester four-piece headed to South By Southwest Festival in Texas.
“The JV means Dirty Hit with be partnering with Interscope in the USA for Pale Waves,” said Oborne, who also manages the band through his All On Red management company.
“This is a set up we are very used to as we have similar deals with both The 1975 and The Japanese House. I’m delighted to be working another project with John Janick and his wider Interscope team.”
Pale Waves starred on the cover of Music Week as part of our new music special back in January, and Oborne has high hopes for their campaign in America this year, as they put the finishing touches to their as yet untitled debut.
“Pale Waves had a great SXSW, building on the groundwork my Dirty Hit team has been laying in the USA for the last 18 months,” Oborne said. “In fact we have a great 2018 in the making with albums from Pale Waves, The Japanese House and indeed The 1975.”
After featuring in the Top 5 of the BBC Sound Of 2018 poll, Pale Waves were named as the most-tipped new act of the year, according to Music Week research.
