Ifyou were a Barfly on the wall in Camden last month, you would have seen rising new Welsh band, Pretty Vicious play two incendiary back to back dates. If you didn’t, read on and find out more about their upcoming September dates…Singer, Brad Griffiths and his three fellow band members make the kind of racket that gets the blood pumping in a way that should be bottled and given to jaded thirty-somethings who think they’ve seen and done it all.
Yes, it’s reconstructed rock n roll with a dirty fingernail’s scoop of punk, but come on, when you’re young, can play your instruments well and aren’t all about a one way ticket on the fame train, sheer joie de vivre alone will prop you up. Not to say that their songs aren’t bad. They’re only a handful of releases in (Cave Song, It’s Always There), but have already supported The Manics, and played some tip-top festivals.
It’s Always There chops like Sweeney Todd and shreds like an origami ninja. Yes, they do sound like a bit angrier Arctic Monkeys, but, we suppose they’re Pretty Vicious, rather than just Vicious. catch them on 25th September at Tufnell Park Dome.
