Pacific has an almost cinematic flair to their music, at this point in their journey, and I absolutely love it! Their new single titled ‘Let Me Out’ sucks you in, in such an immersive way, that you are almost blindsided by it from the start. The hook is massive and the song really gets you from that first piano chord. I would love to be a fly on the wall during the songwriting process because Pacific has this style to their music that is both signature and inviting. Just check out the evolution of our reviews coinciding with Pacific releases HERE. You can see the career growth from the first to this.
The single ‘Let Me Out’, to me, is the essence of powerful songwriting and recording that goes the way it should from inception to final mastering. I can’t wait to see what is next.
About ‘Let Me Out’
Piano-indie rockers Pacific return with ‘Let Me Out’, after receiving support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, METRO, Jack FM and Manchester United FC. With 2 sell-out gigs already this year, Northwich in Jan & Manchester in Feb, their previous single received major support from BBC Intro Stoke (radio play and a 30-min live gig on air) & XS Manchester (radio play and live session). However, ‘Let Me Out’ shows the band back better than ever, bringing anthemic and emotive vocals, invigorating piano-fuelled energy and captivating guitars.
Pacific’s single ‘Time to Forget’ reaped the band’s first BBC Radio 1 play on the Huw Stephens show, along with airplay on a further eighty UK radio stations and press features from Q Magazine. Pacific’s energetic single ‘Life in Short’ exclusively launched with Metro declaring “New band Pacific is proving indie music is getting a much needed coming back.” The single won Staffordshire & Cheshire’s ‘Best Local Single’ at the 6 Towns Radio Awards 2018, it has been playlisted in retail stores across the UK, placed on national radio rotation on Jack FM and Union Jack FM and gained regional support with stations such as XS Manchester. The song has recently passed over 180k streams of Spotify, making it onto Discover Weekly playlists and high profile playlists such as PopFiltr’s ‘Rocking Indie’, resulting in Spotify for Artists congratulating the band via Twitter. ‘Life in Short’s music video has passed over 23k views on YouTube and was also selected by professional snooker player Liam Highfield as his walk-on song for every TV match in the 2018/19 season.
Pacific’s music has additionally gained support from Manchester football clubs; the band’s song ‘Dream of Mine’ has frequented Premier League match playlists at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, with Pacific’s music videos also on heavy rotation on Manchester United’s TV channel MUTV.
