jodiejanelyons The music is so diverse, and it can satisfy any mood or activity. Either dancing or chilling out. It would be a great album for a road trip. Favorite track: Melt.

Dan Webb For fans of Supergrass and The Vines. A really solid debut full length to back up their great live shows. Get on it! Favorite track: Mary Go Round.
Charlie Mayer

Charlie Mayer Yet another amazing band from the land down under... This album if full of striking hooks and an amazing wall of sound that is both accessible yet seems distant. Love the slight fuzz in the vocals! Favorite track: Melt.

about

Pretty City Melbourne, Australia

Melbourne shoegazers Pretty City say they are influenced by Mystic Spiral, fictional band from 90s cartoon show Daria, and aspire to be like Trent’s band from Reality Bites.
Smashing Pumpkins-esque fuzzed out guitars and washy, reverb drenched vocals like New Order. With slick pop sensibilities and impressive live shows, the groups tongue in cheek humour is backed up with a seriously strong band.

Track Name: Melt
Melt

You’ve got something I need
Everything just melts away
Take me out to the east
Where everything just melts away

And as we look to the east
Everything just melts away
Then we rise for the feast
And everything just melts away

Everything just melts away
Everything just melts away

You’ve got something
Everything
You’ve got something
Everything melts away

Everything just melts away
Everything just melts away
Track Name: Running Around
Running Around

Running Around
Feeling the same
Running Around
Playing your game

You and I know we know
We’ve never been you know
But if I want to feel you
And you want to love me
It’s alright

Running Around
Feeling the same
Running Around
Playing your game

When I find something I love
I slow right down
When there is fear inside my soul
I run around

Running Around
Feeling the same
Running Around
Playing your game
In your light
It’s your light it’s your light
It’s your light it’s your light
It’s your light it’s your light

You and I know we know
We’ve never been you know
But if I want to feel you
And you want to love me
It’s alright

Running Around
Feeling the same
Running Around
Playing your game
In your light
It’s your light it’s your light
It’s your light it’s your light
It’s your light it’s your light
Track Name: Mary Go Round
Mary Go Round

Go round, go round
Go round, go round

You know I’m leaving you
For the last time now
You’ve got your reasons too
Keep them by your side

I feel like we’re pushing the same pieces around
Going nowhere watching mary go round
Come on home
Go round
Come on home

Go round, go round
Go round, go round

You take what you deserve
From the time we shared
You find what you want to be
And I’ll meet you there

I feel like we’re pushing the same pieces around
Going nowhere watching mary go round
Come on home
Go round
Come on home
Go round
Come on home
Go round
Come on home

Come on home
Go round
Come on home
Go round, go round
Go round, go round
You know I’m leaving you
For the last time now
You know I’m stepping off
For the last time now
Track Name: Second Hand Clothes
Second Hand Clothes

I don’t know why
I feel like I feel
But I’m feeling it all the same
Everyone knows
What the feelings feel like
Cos everyone feels the same
Everyone feels the same

Out in the world
I feel like I’m nothing
And all of my friends
Are insane
In second hand clothes
We stand in rows
And everyone feels the same
Everyone feels the same

In second hand clothes
We stand in rows
In second hand clothes
These second hand clothes
Are all I own
I’m second hand
Note for note

Am I doing this right?
Cos I really want to
Give it some time
There are things
In my life
That keep passing me by
You are not alone

Was I doing this thing right?
I really want to
Give it some time
There are things
In my life
That keep passing me bye bye
You are not alone

You’ll know me
When I take you over
You’ll know me
When I take you over
Don’t follow me

You’ll know me
When I take you over
You’ll know me
When I take you over
Don’t follow me
Track Name: Feel The Colour
Feel The Colour

I never met anyone like you
You’re so cool
I’m not sure that I ever even knew
You’re so cool
You’re so cool
You’re so cool

And I feel
And I feel
I can feel your colour
Can you feel
Can you feel
Can you feel the colour

I never went anywhere like this
It’s just bliss
I’m not sure that I ever shoot to miss
You’re so cool
You’re so cool
You’re so cool

And I feel
And I feel
I can feel your colour
Can you feel
Can you feel
Can you feel the colour
I can feel your colour

And I feel
And I feel
I can feel your colour
Can you feel
Can you feel
Can you feel the colour
I can feel your colour
Track Name: Leave It Alone
Leave It Alone

When you get
To the edge of reason
In the end
There’s an afterglow
It’s nothing more
Than a social reflex
If you could
You would leave it alone

Leave it alone
When it feels so
Forget what you know
And leave it alone

Fear and loathing
And the rest you
Never know
Where it all could lead
It’s nothing more
Than a social reflex
It’s nothing more
Than a memory

Leave it alone
When it feels so
Forget what you know
And leave it alone

Love is only a social reflex
If you could you would leave it alone
Nothing more than a social reflex
If you could you would leave it alone
Track Name: [Feeding Frenzy]
Feeding Frenzy

In the feeding frenzy
I am with you
Track Name: Ignoring My Friends
Ignoring My Friends

I take a walk down this street
Every morning
I’m either dead or I’m simply
Ignoring my friends
My friends

I need to change cos they really
Resent it
Now I got you I hope I
Never see them again
My friends

They don’t love me like you do
They don’t love me like you do

I’m not afraid of the things
That I’m missing
I could have stayed, but I chose
To be with you instead
Cos you’re my friend

They don’t love me like you do
They don’t love me like you do
My friends
