Pretty Sick "Bet My Blood" Video

Pretty Sick has released another video from their EP, Comedown. The clip was Directed by Manon Macasaet, “Bet My Blood” stars frontwoman Sabrina Fuentes as the lead nurse in a frenzied emergency room where she treats an array of special medical conditions from stomach butterflies to a broken heart. Of the track, Fuentes says: “The song is sort of a warning about running away from your troubles, shortcomings, obstacles or whatever. If you don’t deal with your demons in this life they’ll follow you to the next.”

Pretty Sick’s Comedown EP is set to release June 17th via Dirty Hit Records. The project is the follow up to last year’s EP, Deep Divine. Native New Yorker Sabrina Fuentes formed Pretty Sick when she was just 13-years-old. In addition to Fuentes on bass, Pretty Sick is also drummer Austin Williamson of New York City experimental jazz group Onyx Collective, guitarist Wade Oates, formerly of The Virgins, and bassist Orazio Argentero, whom Fuentes met in her contemporary music program at Goldsmiths University in London, England.

In the course of a relatively short, formative span of time in her life, Fuentes has become a vital presence in the youthful New York City scene where skaters, visual artists, rock’n’roll-obsessed teens, and jazz heads all rub shoulders in the wide avenues, shoebox apartments, and galleries of the Lower East Side. Fuentes weaves this creative community into her sometimes raucous, sometimes restrained, and always personal songwriting and visuals. With songs that stem from her pre-teenage years to today, Fuentes’ new music builds on the sound of Pretty Sick’s earlier releases to fully chart the experience of being a teenager in New York City.

In the time since New York native Sabrina Fuentes released Pretty Sick’s debut self-titled EP in 2016, the now 20-year-old Fuentes graduated from high school, modeled for the likes of Opening Ceremony and Converse, and enrolled in a popular music program at Goldsmiths University in London. Fuentes started the band when she was just 13-years-old, and in the course of a relatively short, formative span of time in her life she’s become a vital presence in the youthful New York City scene where skaters, visual artists, rock’n’roll-obsessed teens, and jazz heads all rub shoulders in the wide avenues, shoebox apartments, and galleries of the Lower East Side. Fuentes weaves this creative community into her sometimes raucous, sometimes restrained, and always personal songwriting and visuals. Pretty Sick’s new video for the aptly titled “Allen Street” is a case in point for this community-oriented approach. Directed by frequent collaborator Manon Macasaet, Fuentes and her friends drive along Allen Street as Fuentes’ friends float by on skateboards, cheekily flipping off the camera, and fuzzy dice swing from the rearview mirror.
