Bio

For Melbourne indie rock group PRETTY BLEAK, their first single out the gate is anything but. A strong and vibrant cut of music that demonstrates the musicality of the group. Hedonistic and thriving on some insatiable electro-pop, ‘Jawline’ is a defining effort and statement of intent.

Developing their new music between vocalist Sam Thomas’ home studio, and Homesurgery Recordings in Melbourne, PRETTY BLEAK brought engineer Jon Grace (Dear Seattle, Pinkish Blu, Bakers Eddy) onboard the project to add some finesse to it final form. A final form that is marked by dark pop synths soaring vocals and expert production layered throughout.

An artist that sound anything like their moniker and who evidently are big fans of Matt Healy. Good song and some real character to the vocals. I like some of the production choices, they help to make this one stand out

Got a surge of '80s pomp and energy to it. A bit like Adam Ant joining The 1975.

PRETTY BLEAK know how to make an entrance! Blasts of the 80's in this and so much synth! Easy to get sucked in and I'm a sucker for that chorus! Excited to see what else you've got coming.
