Pretty//Ugly is very pleased to announced this wild line up:
Low Life (Au)
Australian postpunk at it’s finest. The new album is an absolute gem. Less gritty and dark than Downer EDN, their latest offering almost verges on Madchester territory, with a sonically much wider palette and strings and trumpet added.
Rotterdam-based, eclectic Krautrock collective Smudged blends elements of repetitive synth patterns, live-drums and soundscapes resulting in a scuzzy mix of energetic garage and electronics. They’ve made quite a name for themselves kissing grandmothers and roaming the depths of the Dutch underground with their frenetic and high energy liveshows
This group of three girls and two boys strikes the perfect balance between post-punk and new-wave, between man and woman, between hope and fear and between Fontaines DC and Joy Division. It’s hard, it’s angry, it’s melancholic and it’s urgent. But it is mainly NOYS.
