Pretties For You


Pretties for You are a Swedish Indie Rock band, hosted in the Gothenburg area. But in the same time I have to say they are much much more than that. Their music has been described as a mix between New Wave and Indie Rock, and the band has been compared with acts such as legendary Blondie and newbies like the Vaccines.

The band was formed in January 2011 and shortly thereafter they released their debut single, Woods, and received critical acclaim for their melodic and immediately accessible sound.

The band’s musical influences vary from bands such as Arcade Fire, the National, Radical Face and the Knife, to rock icons such as Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Fleetwood Mac and Kate Bush, to keep the list short.

Pretties for You may be an Indie Rock band but the name derives from Alice Cooper’s album with the same title. For the band, the name represents “the idea of doing something completely opposite of what people may expect”. The album Pretties for You by Alice Cooper is known to be a real oddity in comparison to his later achievements.
