sophomore EP ‘Party Friends’ out now. Touring WA in May
Perth-via-Busselton trio Pretty Uglys release their sophomore EP ‘Party Friends’ today.
The band’s five-track sophomore EP features a mixed bag of punk and surf-rock songs that they’ve been playing in their live set for a while. It comes on the back of single ‘Party Friends’, which was added to Triple j Unearthed and the DIY video on RAGE and ‘Emergency Room’ which premiered on Triple j Unearthed and played on Triple j’s Home & Hosed on April 12.
“Feels epic to get this release into the world collectively putting together these tracks in a way that helps solidify our own sound direction from over the past 12 months at least, with both happy and deeper/heavier tracks all in the mix.’’
Writing and recording the tracks as a collective out of Perth’s Sumo Studios, Pretty Uglys enlisted “good mate” Tristan Sturmer to mix the EP and George Georgiadis to master it. The band saying, “All songs we compiled together in our rehearsal room generally sparking from a simple guitar or bass part, which evolves into a sum what structured track with lyrics always coming last. We used the garageband app on iphone to demo a lot of it, then went to see to our good mate Tristan Sturmer at Sumo Studios Perth which is where we recorded all the final versions of the songs.”
The band will be hitting the road in WA along with some of their mates in May.
