When asking Melbourne psyche rock legends PRETTY CITY, “Why?”in the era of digital downloads, streaming and CD’s,they wanted to pursue the costly exercise of putting their debut album ‘COLORIZE’onto Vinyl, this is how they answered:
“There’s got to be a reason Madonna says ‘Hey Mr DJ put a RECORD on I wanna dance with my baby’. And here it is: Digital is instant coffee music: you mostly eat it with a spoon rushing out the door. It does ok, however, Vinyl has that dark, sticky flavour. It melts your face and caresses your soul at the same time. Who wouldn’t sign up for that?”Hugh – Pretty City
Really … how can you possibly argue with that?
Pretty City’s debut album COLORIZE has taken the band to new heights not only in the land down under but in the big shiny beacon of eternal rock star dreams, the US of A.
Keeping good company with artists like The Kills & Paul Simon, ‘Colorize’ is the 12th most added record to US college radio &is one of only two independent records to be included in the top 20.
Back home COLORIZE garnered nothing short of rave reviews;
“Colorize covers genres such as ambient, experimental and shoegaze, but what’s truly astounding is how perfectly the album progresses. There is a clear logic behind the track listing, which ties together the flawless album. This album cries out to be played in full, start to finish, and the payoff for doing so makes for something even greater than the sum of its parts”– The Music
“The acid-drenched debut album from Pretty City will consume you with the Melbournians’ progressive sound.” – AAA Backstage
