Perth-via-Busselton trio Pretty Uglys have today unveiled their glistening sophomore EP, Party Friends! Featuring the singles, Emergency Room and Party Friends, the release is complete with an additional three new tracks that capture the bands particular blend of punk and surf-rock.
Written and recorded at Perth’s Sumo Studios, enlisted Tristan Sturmer and George Georgiadis on mixing and mastering duties. Having recorded a number of demos on Garageband on their iPhone's, the three-piece worked with Sturmer to refine the compositions into the songs we hear today.
Speaking of the release, the band share: “Feels epic to get this release into the world collectively putting together these tracks in a way that helps solidify our own sound direction from over the past 12 months at least, with both happy and deeper/heavier tracks all in the mix.’’
The three-piece will also be hitting the road this May, performing a string of shows across Western Australia to celebrate the release of Party Friends. “We are starting in Fremantle with a show at Mojo’s Bar on the 1st of May. Next show is on the 13th playing a surf premiere party for RUSTY in Perth. The following night we head south for a show at The River in Margaret River near our home turf, then cruising back up the freeway for the last one on the 15 th of May at one of our favorite venues, Indi Bar in Scarborough. Stoked to have a big list of mates bands joining us over the 4 dates, yyeooowww’’
