It can take some bands years of posting music online to find a fanbase. Not so with Merthyr Tydfil-based rockers Pretty Vicious, who popped a single track, Cave Song, on Soundcloud and the BBC Introducing Uploader last year then sat back with a bag of popcorn and watched everything go bananas. They followed it this year with It’s Always There – released digitally and also on a limited-edition Record Store Day 7″ – and already find themselves on the cusp of a major breakthrough.
You can hear the influence of Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Royal Blood and even Jake Bugg in those astonishingly confident two songs, which have been picked up BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru and Radio 1, who playlisted Cave Song and made It’s Always There a Hottest Track In The World. Pretty Vicious – comprised of Brad (lead vocals/guitar), Tom (guitar), Jarvis (bass) and Elliot (drums) – make it all seem so easy, and they’re all still teenagers.
