Time to Forget by Pacific

Having won the national vote to play Y Not Festival 2019, following two sell-out shows this year and BBC Radio 1 and METRO backing, piano-indie band Pacific return with ‘Time to Forget’

Pacific are making a name for themselves with their blend of alternative rock and indie nuances. The piano-indie band return with ‘Time to Forget’ on Friday 30th June, having been spun on BBC Radio 1, featured in METRO and already seen a year of success with two sell out shows and strong BBC Introducing support.

‘Time to Forget’ is an immediate single, with anthemic melodies, unique piano and entrancing guitar and synth play. It captures the feeling of blissful self-actualisation between coming to terms with nostalgia for the past and excitement for the future ahead. Listen to ‘Time to Forget’ here: https://soundcloud.com/pacificofficial/time-to-forget-2019/s-5p6Je

2019 alone has already been a year of success for Pacific, with two sell-out shows in Northwich (The Salty Dog) and Manchester (Jimmy’s), as well as winning Y Not Festival‘s public vote to play the festival from 1,000s of acts that applied. This year has also seen strong radio support, with 10 BBC Radio plays, a 30-minute, live-on-air gig on BBC Introducing, as well as a live session on XS Manchester. The band also joined All Tvvins as support last month, performed at Dot to Dot Festival in May and Blackthorn Festival in July.

Pacific have also been championed by Manchester football clubs, with Salford City FC and Gary Neville using the band’s music for the past two years in video material, including in their 2019 highlights video celebrating their first ever EFL match. Pacific’s music has also frequented Premier League match playlists at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium alongside Blossoms and Catfish and The Bottlemen and the band performed at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.

Further to this, the band received an impressive ‘Guardian Weekend’ 3-page cover feature this summer across Northwich Guardian, Warrington Guardian and the Winsford and Middlewich Guardian, following single ‘Bottle This Love’.

Pacific are showing no signs of slowing down, with a headline show in Manchester in association with Scruff of the Neck at Night Peopleset for Saturday 7th September 2019.

Pacific’s previous singles have seen 190k streams on Spotify (Life in Short), been playlisted across retail stores acrossthe UK (Life in Short), and receivednational radio play on Jack FM (Life in Short, Clarity, Let Me Out). ‘Life in Short’ won Staffordshire & Cheshire’s ‘Best Local Single’ at the 6 Towns Radio Awards 2018.
