Pretty Pretty play retro doo wop-esque pop rock. With the lo-fi hum of the vinyl, the Midwestern band conveys a majorly West Coast vibe. However, their 7” Leather Weather escapes the tedious monotony so easy to fall into with that style of music. Instead, Pretty Pretty successfully injects variety into their approach, making for a really fun listening experience. The first song has a nineties, grungy, Cranberries sound—the type of song you might find on a Daria soundtrack—whereas the other songs were more twee and apt for a foot-tapping, head-bobbing good time.
