Album Notes
Pretty Balanced goes crazy. Judith, Forest and Parker eat the world.

Since 2004 the band concentrated very hard. It was young, full of teenagers, and felt around in the world of goth a little bit before settling on unsettling with a strong dash of cheerful and hyper. "Simon's Sleeping" was on the Hot Topic exclusive compilation A DARK CABARET and then the band went platinum! Well, they released a first album anyway, a mere 500 copies, and then went on to get lost in New York City and shake their fists in frustration. Now they are older, still scrabbling up through the carnage of other local bands gone sour, screaming "WE WILL CONQUER, EVERY PERSON IN THE WORLD WILL SAY, WTF IS THAT, I'VE HEARD OF THAT!"

Why aren't more people listening?
This is THE exciting new musical discovery that I have made over the past year. Pretty Balanced have done it again with an album that is alternately sombre, angry, weird, excited, serene, and chipper. And consistently, it is, as Franck says, quirky, charming, and beautiful.


Quirky, charming, beautiful
If you came here to discover a fabulous new band, your search is over. These young people have it all: charm, wit, disarming talent. Will you dance around to (or with) "Weird Men"? Be moved by the pure unadulterated beauty of "Gas Flame" or "Jazz"? Smile at the superbly captured teenage bile of "12"?... I could go on. This band is a treasure and I wish more people would find it and share it.


This is a wonderful sophomore effort by this talented band. I love everything they do and they never cease to amaze me. YOU MUST CHECK THEM OUT! This record is a treat to your ears, sprinkled with sugary piano goodness on top!
