WA’s Pretty Uglys return for the New Year with amped tune ‘Party Friends’

For Perth-via-Busselton trio Pretty Uglys, 2020 remained a fairly fruitful year even though the party/live music opportunities elsewhere around the country came to a screeching halt.

Out on the West Coast, the band dedicated the year to the preparation of their forthcoming EP Party Friends, releasing two tracks in ‘Soak It Up’ and ‘Dreamland Delusion’ – both further establishing the band as one to watch.

And now, as 2021 kicks off with hope, excitement and much anticipation for a return to normal, the Pretty Uglys guys kick this new era off with the EP’s title track, releasing ‘Party Friends’ in January from their forthcoming EP set for release in 2021. 

A track that demonstrates the band’s strong dynamic, a love for some classic surf rock influences and a lean further into confident new sounds and lyricism, ‘Party Friends’ is the quintessential Pretty Uglys vibe that that band is charging ahead into the New Year with.

Writing and recording the track as a collective out of Perth’s Sumo Studios, Pretty Uglys approached their latest single with this overarching theme of bonds and connection well in mind, as well as their eventual return to touring. With dates locked in for Western Australia throughout January, Pretty Uglys are gonna be out on stages and back with fans very soon.
