Platinum-selling Fueled By Ramen band All Time Low have shared a brand new single entitled “PMA“ (Feat. Pale Waves). The track is available today on all streaming platforms, while an accompanying lyric video for the song is streaming on All Time Low‘s YouTube channel.
Upholding what has become an undeniable creative partnership in the studio, All Time Low worked with longtime collaborator and producer Zakk Cervini (Blink-182, MGK, Halsey) on the track. “PMA“ hinges on effervescent electric hooks as All Time Low‘s Alex Gaskarth and Pale Waves‘ Heather Baron-Gracie trade-off melodies as they work through their anxiety.
Gaskarth elaborated on the collaboration, “‘PMA’ is a journey into isolation and overstimulation. It‘s about the little mundane things we do to keep ourselves distracted when loneliness becomes a constant and leaves us feeling apathetic. It‘s existential dread wrapped in nervous laughter kissed by the SoCal sun. Heather and Pale Waves joining us on this one quite literally brings the hopeful shine to the lyrics, the promise of safety in the shared experience, the understanding we‘re all living it together.“
Baron-Gracie added, “I was really happy that Alex asked me to be on the track as I‘ve always been a big fan of All Time Low and I loved the song when he sent it over. I really related to the themes, especially the exhausting worry that you‘re never doing / being enough in life.“
It arrives on the heels of the band‘s latest single “Once In A Lifetime.“ It has already surpassed 20 million streams and counting in addition to reaching #5 at Alternative Radio and attracting critical acclaim. NME hailed it as “reflective“ and “hopeful,“ and KERRANG! dubbed it “dark but typically anthemic and infectious.“ Produced by Cervini and Andrew Goldstein [Maroon 5, Katy Perry, blackbear], American Songwriter attested, “the new cut crashes the senses in bursts of color and sound,“
