“By The Beach” is an old tune that has had new life breathed into it through Pretty‘s development as a band.
“By The Beach“ was produced by Pretty, working alongside their engineer, Aaron Goldstein. Recording to tape helped the trio strip down the song making process and really let their live sound shine through, one that doesn’t lose touch of the madness which psychedelic music is meant to reflect.
For Pretty, the most rewarding aspect of hearing “By The Beach” back now is knowing that it was recorded as a full band together in a room, and that the performance was real and immediate.
The process they went through to create this new version of “By The Beach“ really taught them the value in rehearsing, arranging, and pre-producing our songs. Pretty have become dead set on making future tracks and albums in the same way, with rigorous practice and a live approach.
They hope that you can hear the refinement of their sound and that you enjoy the live energy this recording captures.
