The emerging Newcastle trio The Pale White released their debut single ‘Reaction’ on Ignition 45’s at the end of January. Since it’s release it’s clocked up over 115k streams on Spotify, has been added to the Radio 1 ‘Introducing Track’ playlist and MTV Rocks C list. Lots of live shows coming up including a March tour supporting High Tyde, supporting Darlia at the Camden Assembly on 29.3 and they were announced on the line up for Stockton Calling
‘Reaction’, a thumping slice of Josh Homme-infused blues-rock featuring Adam Hope on vocals/guitar, brother Jack on drums and Tom Booth on bass, will not just prick up ears, but no doubt grab the entire industry by the scruff of the neck. Produced by rock stalwart Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters), the boys’ introduction for the world is both intensely melodic and catchy, while packing a mighty bark and bite to match.

Though Adam, 23, and Tom, 25, have been fixtures on the scene for over half a decade now, it was only upon Adam’s return from London to Newcastle in March 2015 that the band took shape. First recruiting younger brother Jack, 18, to start the group and demo some of his songs, the group was later completed by long time friend Tom. Adam credits ‘Reaction’, a track written in his bedroom – as “the blueprint of what we are”.
