My Mind Makes Noises by Pale Waves There is a misconception amongst casual music listeners that there is such a thing as an ‘overnight success’. In reality, for every award, every hit single and every massive show, there are untold hours of blood, sweat and tears that each artist needs to endure before they can own their success.
