Alexander & the Grapes
"Alexander and the Grapes packs a sweet and juicy wallop of pop, psychedelic and country. Whether those styles come at you mixed up or distilled with pure directness, there isn't a bad tune in the bunch."
~ Julie Garisto, TBT
Pretty & Nice
Pretty & Nice are a Boston quartet intent on creating joyous feelings. Songs are born on sunny porches, electrified, dolled up, and slingshot skyward. It's an advanced pop crash course, and your brain may have trouble keeping up with your feet.
From their Pink & Blue debut to the Hardly Art-released Get Young and throughout the forthcoming LP with a particularly golden title, the music of Pretty & Nice is engineered for multiple listens. Songs blossom multiple times, tightrope walking between complexity and accessibility with tremendous balance. The Onion's AV Club says it well: "The band buries post-punk hooks under feverish ranting and the trash-can clang of robotic electro... Riffs are spot-welded to jerky beats, and the whole sound hinges on a gleeful self-deconstruction."
