Along with a stunning music video of the same title, dark pop powerhouse RIVALS announced details for their latest full-length album, SAD LOOKS PRETTY ON ME, which will be released on March 19, 2021 via Smartpunk Records.
RIVALS new album, SAD LOOKS PRETTY ON ME exists in two worlds. The Los Angeles quartet — vocalist Kalie Wolfe, bassist Sebastian Clarke, guitarist Micket Woodle, and drummer Josh Alves — draw a wobbly line between blossoming pop-rock and wilting post-hardcore, often alternating between sides for earth-shattering effects. By wearing their inspirations proudly (and enlisting the help of contemporaries), RIVALS clamour for the attention of both radio listeners and bedroom moshers. Eventually, their explosive live act—which has garnered the attention of audiences nationwide—will wear this new set of songs.
