Following a string of WA tour dates throughout January and February, Perth surf-rock trio Pretty Uglys release their latest uplifting track ‘Radio Waves’. It’s the follow up to triple j unearthed favourite ‘Situation City’ and their acclaimed 2021 sophomore EP ‘Party Friends’. Although ‘Radio Waves’ celebrates being young with minimum responsibility, the lyrics highlight life can sometimes be a struggle.
‘It’s a track written abouts the ups and down of how we all feel at times, symbolized by a radio wave. Sometimes life is a high, sometimes it can be hard to see the end of the tunnel, at the end of the day we all feel it and are in it together, its an uplifting track for us to play’’
Reuniting with long term collaborators Tristan Sturmer (Deadspace, Star Arcana) at Perth’s Sumo Studios and mastering done by George Georgiadis (Debbies, Gang Of Youths, Last Dinosaurs) at Little Wing Sound, the band created a four minute jam that combines jangly guitar riffs and blissful sincere lyrics with dynamic indie-rock drum work.
“It all started with the chorus melody being played on the guitar, we built on it from there over a couple of sessions until it turned into what it is now’’
Pretty Uglys will be performing ‘Radio Waves’ plus tracks from their EP ‘Party Friends’ at
the Indian Ocean Hotel, Scarborough, WA on Friday May 27.
Supports: King Brown, Paint, Fat Face
In 2021, they released their acclaimed sophomore EP ‘Party Friends’ and played their biggest live shows to date in WA. They have supported Pist Idiots, Ruby Fields, Spacey Jane, Sly Withers and they’ve recently collaborated with Rusty Australia who created and printed their merchandise.
