I thought I had them all figured out. Each Hardly Art release since their inception as a label has seen artists that dabble — albeit barely at times — in some form of folk. Sure, it may be obscure, as in the case of Le Loup, but it’s always there. Enter Pretty And Nice (MySpace) with their recent release, Get Young.
Now my theories are all blown to shit.
Pretty And Nice, instead of folk, can be found somewhere on the edges of punk. Their music is volumes louder than their label predecessors. Take “Tora Tora Tora” as a prime example — the song has not a trace of folk in it, but is just as catchy as anything you’ll find from the rest of Hardly Art’s entourage.
Guess I’m gonna have to develop an alternate theory and begin anew.
