Pretty are people who appear onstage with lots of noise and then leave. This half-silly, half-serious sentence summarizes the Toronto psych band’s ethic and sound, from their early inspiration by Toronto’s 2010s-era DIY punk scene, to their current fascination with psychedelic sound and culture, elements that fuse into a highly distinctive, dark and frenzied sonic landscape. The group has enjoyed success on streaming platforms, with their debut single Mushroom Man currently approaching two million Spotify plays.
The band had a busy 2022, recording their second EP and follow-up to their debut album Sertraline Dream (2020); playing headline sets to increasingly large and enthusiastic crowds and being featured acts for Exclaim! Magazine’s Class of 2022, Canadian Music Week and Sarnia’s Empty Fest. If you dig getting warped and discovering another side of yourself, you won’t want to miss Pretty.
Pretty is: Torin Craig (guitar/vocals), Eliot Rossi (guitar), Will Macquarrie (bass), Brian Heyes (keys), Morgan Zych (drums).
