About Pretty Vicious

This four-piece rock band, hailing from Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, made raw, punk-infused, energetic rock & roll. Made up of vocalist/guitarist Brad Griffiths, guitarist Tom McCarthy, bass guitarist Jarvis Morgan, and drummer Elliot Jones, the group uploaded the track "Cave Song" to SoundCloud and BBC Introducing in 2014, generating attention from BBC Radio Wales and XFM. The band followed up with the digital single "Its Always There," eventually capturing the attention of Radio 1, who tagged it their Hottest Track in the World. The release was also pressed as a limited-edition 7 for Record Store Day 2015. Opting for the standard, old-school machine of two guitars, a bass, and a drum kit, the band drew comparisons to other British acts such as Kasabian, Royal Blood, Oasis, and the Arctic Monkeys. With sneering, overdriven guitar riffs, blistering drums, and ornery and indifferent vocals, their sound hearkened back to the incandescent guitar music of the 90s, melding the carefree lyrics of Brit-pop together with the bored, delinquent attitude of punk rock. Their rise to prominence led to performances at the Isle of Wight and Glastonbury festivals alongside acts such as the Prodigy and Fleetwood Mac, as well as support slots for the Courteeners and the Vaccines. During the tail-end of 2015, the band embarked on a small headline tour before returning to the studio to work on further material. ~ Rob Wacey
