Dead Pretties’ career was a short-lived one but for the time they made music, their star burned more brightly than most. They made their message abundantly clear; no time for fools. With disdain at Western media, social conformity and a general air of unruliness which seeped into every facet of their music, the band garnered a dedicated fanbase, which gathered pace at the South London venues where they sown their roots.
Live shows were a force to be reckoned with, with frontman Jacob Slater losing himself in whatever moment he found himself in on stage. Sadly, the band decided to call it a day not long after with the trio going on to work on their own solo projects, which still manage to draw in the crowds.
“Injecting fun into London’s rising army of great new bands, Dead Pretties are guitar heroes-in-waiting – or one step away from the self-destruct button.”
