This one goes out to the nostalgic sound of the noughties, Oh! You Pretty Things storm onto the scene with “This One’s To You”
Transporting us back to the beginning of the noughties with a killer indie sound, Oh! You Pretty Things (David Bowie reference somewhere?) strive to entertain with the power of music.
About to release an entire EP called “N is for Nostalgia”, “This One’s To You” sits with a great force of rage, leaving it a stand out track on the release. With comparisons to bands such as Paramore and Green Day, the nostalgic levels in this are real.
As a band, Oh! You Pretty Things consists of Callie Wolfe on vocals, Joseph Conde on guitar, Paul Swanson on bass and Connor Vogt on drums. Bringing years of writing, producing and experiences as a band to life, they use a mix of pop, punk, hardcore and even blues in their music.
On the track, the band had this to say: “This song is one of the ones we are most proud of. Part diss track, with a bit of post-hardcore, and a bit of bluesy punk. It came together rather quickly with Callie and Joe writing it in an hour or so during a very intense period of time with the song’s antagonist.
We tried to make it as ambiguous as possible so that people can feel it however they need to, to connect to it. The track, along with the entire EP, was produced by Connor Vogt of Never I, and he was directly responsible for the dopest breakdown before the last verse. We all just love that part.”
Refusing to be ignored, This One’s To You needs your attention and love. Breathing in reminiscing memories, the sound feels fresh even though it’s been used many times before. Mixing the hardcore with a simple blues arrangement, Oh! You Pretty Things have something original here.
