Newcomers PACE release latest Bernard Butler produced single ‘LOVE WILL SHINE A LIGHT’

London based trio Pace return with their latest cut ‘Love Will Shine a Light’. The alt-pop group deliver three minutes of blissful pop, mixing classic songwriting with an uplifting message of living for the moment, a sentiment which flows through much of Pace’s music. Lead singer Jamie explains:

“When we wrote the song we were trying to think of regrets we’d had and what we would say if we were talking to our former selves. It’s kind of going back in time to give yourself advice, which I think gives the song an uplifting quality.”

The track was produced and co-written by Bernard Butler, of Suede fame, who was a fan after hearing some of the band’s early demos, he explains: “I heard Jamie’s voice and loved the English baritone quality to it along with the open hearted songs.”

Previous tracks have garnered support from numerous tastemakers online and at radio including BBC IntroducingBBC Radio 2BBC 6 MusicClashGet Into ThisGigslutz, Baeble and many more. ‘Foolish’ (dropped in early 2017) has now received over 250,000 online plays and reached Spotify’s Top 50 UK Viral Tracks after a Spotify Fresh Finds Playlist spot. After selling out their only two London shows thus far, at the iconic St Pancras Old Church, and Dalston’s The Victoria, the band are also quickly gaining an envious reputation on the city’s live circuit.

Pace came together in the spring of 2016, after old friends Jamie Ley and Philip Morris reunited. Following a day spent chatting about their love of great pop music, the pair started playing. Something clicked and an opportunity was seized. The line-up was complete some months later, with the addition of drummer Aaron Colton. ‘Love Will Shine A Light’ is the next chapter in Pace’s story.
