Full of tightly constructed and arranged pop nuggets of a spastic nature, PRETTY & NICE here return with a new tape entitled US YOU ALL WE. Their warped new wave meets glam meets modern sub-pop style pop rock is intact and these four songs whizz by, implanting their hooks deep in your noggin along the way whether you like it or not. And I definitely lean much more toward the liking it side of things. Each song clocks in at under 3 minutes, but each is a journey through herky jerky guitar led verses, big harmonies, memorable choruses, and sudden shifts in unexpected directions. Super inventive pop, like little else we are hearing in Boston or anywhere in New England for that matter. “Hibernate” seems like a classic New England minded ode to resting, and coming back with more vigor than before, and it’s all wrapped up in a bopping pop package featuring the aforementioned twists and turns and soaring vocal melodies. For those of you among us who appreciate pop songwriting as the art form it can be, have a listen won’t you?
