Today’s new music spotlight is on The Pale White.

Location: Newcastle upon Tyne

Line-up: Adam Hope (lead vocals/guitar), Jack Hope (drums) and Tom Booth (bass)

About: The Pale White are a Newcastle-based alternative rock band. Comprising of brothers Adam (lead vocals, guitar) and Jack Hope (drums) and longtime friend Tom Booth (bass), the group first came together when Adam returned home from London to the North East armed with a handful of demos and a fierce determination to start a band. Things very quickly took shape when the band adopted the name, which “alludes to the bright light people claim to see before they die”, aptly reflecting the dark streak that runs through the band’s sound.

What Hidden Herd say: The Pale White make strutting, leather-clad rock ‘n’ roll that sounds like The Black Keys and Josh Homme snarling their way through BRMC’s back catalogue.

For fans of: The Amazons, VANT, Himalayas
