Similar to their recent single ‘Change’, Pale Waves’ latest single ‘She’s my Religion’ explores an avenue within the theme of love that isn’t always so heavily delved into. As lead singer Heather Baron-Gracie sings about her love for the protagonist of the song, she explains how love isn’t as perfect as it is often portrayed musically. As she sings ‘She’s no angel, but she’s my religion’, it demonstrates just how brilliant the songwriting skills of the band are. The personification of ‘religion’ epitomises the strength of the emotion of love because the person has become something that she lives her life by and appears to have become encapsulated by them. Not only this but the fact that she feels this way even though she knows that they are ‘no angel’ illustrates just how love is an unpredictable and uncontrollable emotion. Baron-Gracie reaffirms this depiction whilst discussing the single as she says ‘Society depicts the dark sides to a person as unlovable and tends to only focus on the positive sides. I believe to love someone and their entirety creates a love that is freeing and truthful.’
Cited by front-woman Baron Gracie as ‘Not a standard or typical love song’, ‘She’s my Religion’ shows how Pale Waves intelligently showcase elements of themes that are left untouched by many artists, proving how unique they are and what fans can expect from the upcoming album ‘Who am I?’ set for release in February 2021.
