Bio

Being inspired by the dark pop of The Cure, punk energy of Nirvana, and infusing it with Tim Burton surrealist visuals, PRETTY BLEAK use ambient and shoe-gaze soundscapes to form the textured backdrop of compositionally pop and emo tunes.

Developing their new music between vocalist Sam Thomas’ home studio and and various Melbourne based producers, the band has established a series of singles to release showcasing their take on 21st century pop.

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.
