Pretty Sick Share New Single "Heaven"

London-based, New York City-rooted band Pretty Sick shares “Heaven,” the third single off their debut album Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile, available September 30th via Dirty Hit. The new song follows the lead single “Human Condition,” which arrived with a Frank Lebon-directed surreal video, and “Black Tar,” which came alongside w visuals directed by Fuentes and Ophelia Horto establishing a voyeuristic theme throughout the visuals. Fuentes on bass, Pretty Sick is Sabrina Fuentes on vocals and bass, guitarist Orazio Argentero, who also plays in South London experimental outfit Paddywak, and drummer Ava Kaufman.

Pretty Sick will embark on their headline tour across North America this fall. The 21-date run will begin in Denver on October 28th with stops in Chicago, Portland, Los Angeles (which sold out in less than 24 hours), Austin and Washington, D.C. before wrapping up in New York City on November 21st. Prior to the US dates, Pretty Sick will be supporting beabadoobee across her UK and Ireland tour this October.

Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile contemplates the complex ties of finding a home within a scene. Fuentes grew up in Manhattan, and assumed she’d carry on working after various fashion internships at VFILES and Helmut Lang, until she had a life-changing conversation at a dinner party where an acquaintance pulled her aside and was adamant she get out. Across the 12 tracks, Fuentes grapples with her claustrophobic surroundings, and the idea that the environment you exist in can be a matter of life or death. Chock full of flashbacks to anxiety and the warped sense of realism that comes from teetering on the precipice, Fuentes recalls toxic relationships, power imbalances and a myriad of dangerous situations that she notes, “still keep me up at night.”
