Chateau Apollo, SA
Hello, we are called The Pretty Littles. We are a rock band. We have put out a bunch of songs and EPs and CDs that are pretty much all on Spotify and Itunes and bandcamp and all that sort of thing. There's one EP called Gazunga that isn't, but you don't want none of that.
Sorry about the band name. We don't get it either. It's all long. JET is a bad name too, but at least it doesn't go on forever. Mostly people call us TPL or the Littles which is better.
We have been around pretty much since 2008. It is taking us longer than expected to get good at the singing and the writing and the performing and all that. There has been some improvement though - I mean just listen to the first EP. It's a real stinker. I mean its got some nice moments on it, but lots of the songs have 'she said' in them, which is a sign of angst ridden young men who should not yet be putting pen to paper. The second album release 'I Am Not From a Small Town' was actually pretty sick and maybe better than the two that followed it, but it's always hard to say. Our mate Jono Colliver would say that it is definitely better than 'Mash'. He fucking hates that CD - and fair enough.
I think we were pretty impatient about getting better because in the last 8 years we have played about million gigs. We needed to do this because we all love music but it took us a long time to start loving our own music - Fact. We were helped along by supportive friends and music friends. In the last year there have been more people at the shows, which has been nice but also nerve racking to be honest.
We have been able to play with The Vasco Era, The Smith St Band , Bad//Dreems, The Mess Hall, Custom Kings, Band of Skulls, The Cribs, DZ Deathrays, C W Stoneking, West Thebarton, Cosmic Psychos, King Gizzard, Ships Piano, Neighbourhood Youth and lots more. These are the ones that spring to mind right now.
We have toured with Northeast Party House, The Living End, Ceres, The Delta Riggs, Kingswood and played festivals like Party In The Paddock, Inca Roads, BigSound, St Kilda Fest, Kennedys Creek, Chopped and By The Meadow.
The most recent release titled 'Soft Rock For The Anxious' was released mid-2016. For the most part we all liked the CD and for the most part more of you liked this CD than ever before, so that is for the most part pretty good. So many of you that the Northcote Social Club sold out for its launch and then Howler sold out too a bit after that.
We have released and toured the first song from the new record. The song is called Don Dale and the album is called Skeleton Run.
Anyway, we're playing Chateau Apollo on November 9 and it would be nice to see you there.
