Roll On with Pretty City

Melbourne’s fuzz rockers Pretty City may have that cool slacker sound but their work ethic is anything but lazy. It wasn’t too long ago that they released ‘Piece of the Puzzle’, a single with touches of Smashing Pumpkins and New Order. Now they have new single ‘Roll On’ for you. Its accompanying video clip premiered on The Ripe, who also had this to say: “Shoegrunge is the perfect way to describe what these guys are about, bringing a sound that evokes ’70s rock via Soundgarden, with moments of the bluesy guitar urgency of The White Stripes. It’s guitar music with a slightly coarser edge than much of the filtered psychedelia doing the rounds, and ‘Roll On’ is clearly shaped by the warm fuzz of bands like Cream et al.” The Loft, Warrnambool – August 1 & The Bridge, Castlemaine – August 2.
