Pastel Official make their Liverpool live debut on March 13 in The Jacaranda Club. Having just been named one of This Feeling's 'Big in 2020,' they are one of the best new emerging UK bands at the minute.
Pastel Official are by no stretch of an exaggeration a band that can leave you wanting more after their set. Pastel have the ability to allow people leaving their gig to feel pumped, blown away, and sometimes emotional. They are one of those bands that you just have to see live.
Describing themselves to have a shoegaze/ rocknroll sound, Pastel are driven to make music for you to chill, dance and sing along to. (They really do bring the groove out of you). They simply pride themselves on making good music. Pastels lyrics can resonate with the youth of today and particularly bring the youth out of the blossoming adult. Their setlist contains a song for anyone as there are truths in every song.
After seeing a full set performance from this exciting young band, It is clear that they have something special. Inspired by shoegaze and driven by Rock n roll, This band has the ability to have more than one sound, leaving a listener feeling amazed by the sheer quality and versatility they have thus meaning they can have a power set when they are required and have a dreamy relaxed set when needed.
Forming in Carmarthenshire in late 2017 Pastel are five working class young lads who have quickly established themselves as coming from underdog status to becoming one of Waless best new original bands. The beauty of how Pastel came together is somewhat of a dream come true. They have members from across the U.K and Ireland. Aaron Tormey, songwriter, lead guitarist and backing vocals heirs from Dublin. Two family members of the band James Yates rhythm guitar, and Jack Yates frontman both come from the music capital of Manchester. Keeping their Welsh roots Rhys Wheeler and bass guitarist Liam OShea both come from South Wales.
What makes Pastel so special is that the name fitted well. Sharp yet delicate. An inside story of the bands coming together, Aaron and James both shared love for music and regularly had jamming sessions together. This led to their ambition to play, and live the dream of their own music being shared. They got in contact with Rhys and Liam who they knew also have a keen love for music. The jigsaw puzzle was almost complete before family members James and Jack went to see the Stone Roses at Wembley stadium. Pastel wasnt yet a band until Jack missed his train home to Manchester. Ever since Lead vocalist Jack Yates has lived in South Wales and is now sharing the dream that brought this band together.
Pastels quickly sold out (200 capacity) gig at a hometown gig at The Bunkhouse Swansea. And it's been up since then. This band is up there with the best the UK has today. This band has it all, They tick all the boxes!
