A band you need to know – Pretty Vicious (UK)


Welsh 4-piece band Pretty Vicious formed in march 2014 and signed a record deal with Virgin EMI Records and released three singles as we wait for the debut album.

Another Punk-rock band is ready to make its way into the british chart after Slaves with the same label. Latest single ‘Are You Ready For Me?’ made it into the BBC Radio Playlist.

Brad Griffiths (vocals, guitar), Elliot Jones (drums), Jarvis Morgan (bass) and Tom McCarthy (guitar) are between the age of 18 and 20 and their dressing style is clearly inspired by the likes of Oasis and Arctic Monkeys.

With their sound expanding between the early Arctic Monkeys, a rougher version, ‘Definitely Maybe”s Oasis singer’s vocals remember young Kelly Jones from Stereophonics, it’s not a coincidence that Stereophonics’ frontman is welsh too. ‘Cave Song’, yet to be officially released, is the perfect example.
