Soaring, beat-afflicted Post-Gaze New Wave, inducing moments of hair-raising and hip-thrusting? Yes please.Read More...
Some have described PAPA vs PRETTY as certain to “rock your face”. Others have urged you “catch them before they explode into a fireball of fame that is too bright for your puny mortal eyes to look at”.
Drum Media put it a little more simply when they said “…may god, strike me down if it isn’t the greatest thing I’ve heard all year…the arrival of what should soon be a formidable talent.”
Already making their festival debut this year at 2008’s Parklife Sydney, PAPA vs PRETTY have been added to the end-of-year Peat’s Ridge lineup, sharing the billing with well-known acts like Salmonella Dub, Sparkadia, The Temper Trap, and Pivot.
Having won the hearts and minds alike of Sydney’s indie crowd, the band have enjoyed repeated airplay on sydneys FBi radio and some occasional play on the J’s, as well as numerous comparisons from the blogosphere and street press worlds to Arcade Fire, Joy Division, and Radiohead.
PAPA vs PRETTY have played with the likes of Dappled Cities Fly, British India, Goldfrapp, Soulwax, Dizzie Rascal, Bluejuice, The Devoted Few, 78SAAB, Malcolm Middleton, Grafton Primary & The Temper Trap, and graced many of Sydney’s most sought-after stages, including the Oxford Art Factory, World Bar, and The Factory and Festivals such as Parklife.
As blog Kent Garage put it – “Mais quelle fraicheur dans le son ! Ils livrent une indie puissante, terriblement originale et si rÈflÈchie…C’est la dÈcouverte de ce dÈbut d’automne.”
Or, for the non-French speakers amongst us, “But what freshness in the sound! They deliver powerful indie, terribly original and thoughtful!...
It is the discovery of this Autumn.”
