about

"This ten-year-old Washington outfit scripts poppy melodramas that’ll keep you bouncing all the way from social studies to physical ed. With tales of jittery nerves, fitting in, and girl drama galore, the Pale’s third release is quirky and radio-ready but delightfully free of goopy whining."
- Caryn Ganz, SPIN


"The fast-slow build on "Big Dumb Smile" matches the tale of adolescent mischief, and the gorgeous "Stop/Start" packs a lasting emotional punch."
- Lauren Gitlin, Rolling Stone


"Listening to Gravity, especially the ebullient "Reason to Try," made me wish this season matched the warmth in their songs. I really wanted to see the giddiness in their record spreading around me, to look out the window and see bunches of pink and white blossoms sprouting on the trees instead of the gray and muddy aftermath of Winter Storm 2004 outside. But until the thaw comes, the Pale's songs are a temporary fix for those of us craving a little sunshine."
- Megan Seling, The Stranger


"Reclaim some indie cred by spinning the third release from the Pale. The Northwest's latest rock hype is a pleasant pop gem, full of jangly guitars and mid-tempo tunes with chilled-out keyboards punctuating singer Gabe Archer's often frail lyrics. When Gravity pulls it together with sunshine-covered Beach Boys melodies and a lot of bouncing pop, the job gets done."
- E Online
