Pacific’s single ‘Time to Forget’ reaped the band’s first BBC Radio 1 play on the Huw Stephens show, along with airplay on a further eighty UK radio stations and press features from Q Magazine. Pacific’s energetic single ‘Life in Short’ exclusively launched with Metro declaring “New band Pacific are proving indie music is getting a much needed coming back.” The single won Staffordshire & Cheshire’s ‘Best Local Single’ at the 6 Towns Radio Awards 2018, it has been playlisted in retail stores across the UK, placed on national radio rotation on Jack FM and Union Jack FM and gained regional support with stations such as XS Manchester. The song has recently passed over 180k streams of Spotify, making it onto Discover Weekly playlists and high profile playlists such as PopFiltr’s ‘Rocking Indie’, resulting in Spotify for Artists congratulating the band via Twitter. ‘Life in Short’s music video has passed over 23k views on YouTube and was also selected by professional snooker player Liam Highfield as his walk-on song for every TV match in the 2018/19 season.

Pacific’s music has additionally gained support from Manchester football clubs; the band’s song ‘Dream of Mine’ has frequented Premier League match playlists at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, with Pacific’s music videos also on heavy rotation on Manchester United’s TV channel MUTV. The band have performed at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium as Premier League pre-match entertainment, and there has also been backing from Gary Neville-owned Salford City FC, who have used Pacific’s song ‘Blinded’ across all their social media video content.

Pacific have made huge steps on the live circuit, sharing stages with Razorlight, Maximo Park, Newton Faulkner, Toploader, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Wheatus, The Hoosiers, Starsailor and more, having played festivals across the UK including Crystal Palace Festival, Cornbury Music Festival, Leestock Music Festival and Liverpool International Music Festival to name a few. 2018 saw Pacific gain continued strong support from BBC Introducing, and their first live TV interview on London Live.

2019 has seen them win Y Not Festival’s public vote to play the festival from 1,000s of acts that applied, as well as play a 30-minute, live-on-air gig for BBC Introducing following single ‘Clarity’. Recent live slots have also included Dot to Dot Festival 2019 & joining All Tvvins as main support on their tour.
