Introducing: Pretty Sad

The self-titled EP from UK/Denmark based group, Pretty Sad drips in dreamy shoegaze and heavy reverb forming a perfectly pastel and moody pool of feelings. 

It starts underwater in "Wish You Knew." Distant echoes of guitars parallel pining lyrics, "I wish you knew how I feel for you." They flirt between twee pop and heavy lo-fi, leaving a pleasant haze. "Never Falling" declares to never love again.  The sentiment lingers within off kilter polyrhythms and distant guitar sighs. But "Swim" offers a hopeful conclusion to Pretty Sad's, pretty sad but ultimately optimistic debut. Looking forward to a 2015 full-length album.
