Release Date: Friday 29th May 2020
Having won the national vote to play Y Not Festival 2019, with three sell-out shows last year, as well as BBC Radio 1 and METRO backing, Pacific boost their upward trajectory with “Last Life’’
Pacific boldly reveal more of what they’re all about in enigmatic new single ‘Last Life’. The piano-indie rock band have been carving their own arena in the industry with their unique blend of alternative rock and indie nuances, which has seen them spun on BBC Radio 1, featured in METRO, win the national vote to play Y Not Festival 2019 and sell out three shows across Manchester and Northwich last year.
Pacific kicked off 2020 with January single “Idols”, which garnered six consecutive spins on BBC Music Introducing Manchester including a live session, whilst also being picked up by Tom Robinson’s ‘Fresh on the Net’ – plus radio plays on Amazing Radio, XS Manchester & Jack FM and blog reviews from a multitude of sites including: A1234, Indie Is Not A Genre, Wolf in a Suit, Jammerzine, Ear To The Ground Music and more.
Enter “Last Life”, a daring new release recorded by Kaiser Chiefs producer David Watts, which divulges Pacific have bags of creativity to spare after 2020 debut Idols. The song speaks of undisclosed inner-imagination, a desire to live out a doomed fantasy with the one person who you should actively avoid. It’s destined to end up in flames, but living in a time that’s reminding us of how fleeting life can be – can you fight the temptation to risk another round with the one who makes you feel most alive?
Pacific are showing no signs of slowing down, with their rescheduled headline show at Gorilla, Manchester set for Friday 25th September 2020, plus festival dates at Liverpool Sound City and more TBA later in the year.
2020 has already seen the band’s music continue to be championed by Salford City FC and Gary Neville, who have used Pacific’s music for the past two years in their video material, which adds to band’s football acclaim, also frequenting Premier League match playlists at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium and performing at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.
