“Hi. We’re called the pretty littles once we played with the vasco era and that was sick.”

We really like The Vasco Era, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Pixies, they are probably responsible for our attempt at rock, garage and indie music. In 2012 after our second EP we played 113 gigs. But we sold out Ding Dong/Tote shows and supported the likes of Vasco Era, The Mess Hall, The Cribs, The Fumes and The Datsuns…Then we got a little burnt out and took a break for half a year. Everyone went overseas or did uni and it was a nice little time for thinking. In the end it lead to our first LP called ‘Mash’.

We recorded ‘Mash’ with the great Alex ‘Rudie’ Markwell of The Delta Riggs. He once wrote a song for Keith Urban, but Kief didn’t like it. (Suck eggs Rudie). We called our baby Mash because she was a big ol’ mix of scrappy rock and roll, a bit of scrappy punk, some scrappy ballads and some other genres that I can’t think of right now. We then toured her round Australia (even Darwin) and some people said some nice things, including FasterLouder – “The Pretty Littles have a knack for penning catchy economical songs that end before they outstay their welcome”. We love em.

In 2014 we started recording again, this time with Neil “The” Grey. Rather than doing everything over a couple of weekends, we took a little longer and ended up with 8 tracker, ‘Gospel’. Lyrically, it plays on a concept that moves somewhere between being a kid in control and being an adult lost. It is about the transition from being self-centered, to self-aware, and back again. It’s about what actually means something, but what doesn’t. The music is reminiscent of every other release as it moves somewhere between dumb shit punk, rock and roll and pop. Once released, ‘Gospel’ had plenty of nice people saying nice things, Kill Your Stereo – “songs that throw punches without losing the Australian edge that characterises their swings”, which in turn has made feel nice.

Right On.
