“Abstract, melodic, beautiful pop-art rock”
Pretty & Nice’s debut album, Get Young, was full of antsy energy and manic rhythms that gave them national attention and made the musicians Boston’s sweethearts. Of course in theory, executing a follow-up that would prove just as endearing would be a terrific feat. But Pretty & Nice had no problem rising to the occasion.
On Golden Rules for Golden People, the boys still possess a pummeling sound but added on more sophistication and introspection for good measure. Each track has its own personality; tunes like “Kill The Beast” and “The Frog” are as equally abstract as they are melodic as they are beautiful. The bravado of “Money Music” is enchanting yet daring; it challenges the listener not to dance after just a few seconds. Golden Rules serves as a delightful affirmation of something Pretty & Nice fans already knew: they are just getting started.
