Okay, Let’s Discuss ‘Clean’
We’re fine. It’s fine. ‘Clean’ is just the best song we’ve heard in a hot minute and we were simply unprepared. We are obsessed with the pop-punk sound… this song goes hard. And the video! It’s so rock and roll and edgy but so … well, ‘clean.’ The record spinning effect?? The glitz?? The glamour?? We love it so much it’s actually not a joke anymore, can we marry every member of Pale Waves? The energy in this video is mind-blowing and it’s just so perfect. This whole thing is simply perfect. And excuse me Heather with that red outfit???
‘Clean’ is more heartfelt than ‘Jealousy,’ but the cohesive sound that these songs have … Unwanted is truly a masterpiece.
This song has everything. Vocals, drums, emotion, you name it, it’s there. We need this song played at full volume in a packed stadium. We need to dance to this song right now. ‘Clean’ is a song made to be danced to. So, can you tell we’re obsessed with ‘Clean?’ Cuz we are very obsessed.
This song is an adorable queer song about that first stage of a relationship where you just can’t stop thinking about the other person. This song feels like those cute little romantic butterflies you get, but punk rock. Punk rock butterflies.
Look at these cute little punk butterflies. That’s this song.
This band you guys… we love them. Heather, Hugo, Ciara, and Charlie, if you’re reading this, we love you, you can do no wrong.
