Understanding their own sense of self identity, while also accepting their overall place in the world, isn’t always an easy task for people. But the members of the Boston-based quartet, Pale Monsters, are freely sharing their emotional journey of self discovery on their new single, ‘All This Time We Wait.’ The defining song about self discovery is set to be included on the band’s upcoming full length album, ‘Are You Feeling Alive?,’ which is scheduled to be released in March.

Led by singer-songwriter, Chris Mulvey, Pale Monsters proves what a commanding musical presence it possesses with its stunning mix of electro, post-punk, psychedelic and indie rock vocals and instrumentation. Backed by taunt guitars, entrancing synthesizers and tantalizing drums, Mulvey’s gritty and raw vocals offer an extra sentimental meaning to his poetic lyrics. The pulsating and distorted frequencies that are also used to drive the unique beats also prove that the group isn’t afraid to share what they’re feeling.

‘All This Time We Wait’ is a revolutionary track that also powerfully draws on ’90s indie rock, as Mulvey isn’t afraid to share his vulnerabilities about finding his way in life. He heartfeltfully proclaims that it’s okay to wait for love, as people need to truly decide who, and what, makes them happy. The singer also points out that there will always be some doubt on whether a person’s life will turn out the way they wanted and expected, and in the process, they need to make amends for the way their life is now.

Pale Monsters has set high new standards in the new wave-alternative rock genre with its alluring latest single, ‘All This Time We Wait.’ Mulvey and his bandmates have a natural ability to pay tribute to the musicians they admire, such as the Talking Heads and David Bowie, while also creating vital and exhilarating new sounds. Pale Monsters isn’t afraid to rely on its equally vintage and modernized take on guitar and synth driven rock, in order to curate their sense of self identity.
