Melodic garage, surf, and feminist punk

"The Pretty Greens are writing music that’s visceral and tough to characterize, incorporating bits of surf, garage, Brill Building pop, punk, new wave, and more, into a warm blend of sounds that’s perhaps more evocative of the real complexities of life." - Kate Bracaglia (The Key for WXPN, Philadelphia) 

In early 2014, Philadelphia trio the Pretty Greens released their debut single, Jealous Waves. Recorded and mastered with engineer Will Noon (Straylight Run, fun., Breaking Pangaea) for US independent label February Records, the single featured three tracks of fuzzed out garage, pop, and surf. 

The band features guitar and vocalist Kool Schmool (namesake inspired by Bratmobile's track, "Cool Schmool"), Julia Green on lead vocals and bass, and Carly Green on vocals and drums. 

 The Pretty Greens have shared the stage with punk, surf, and garage contemporaries like La Luz, Shannon 'n' Thee Clams, Psychic Teens, Potty Mouth, The Upset, Tweens, Sleepy Kitty, Mannequin Pussy, Allo Darlin' and more. 

In 2014, the band began committing to more studio time to contribute a track to a compilation on February Records coming out in December 2014. In early 2015, they will release a limited-run cassette EP of brand new material, which will feature exclusive artwork from She Shreds' magazine illustrator Tuesday Bassen.
