In late 2019, the members of PRETTYMUCH found themselves ready for next steps: after having spent the last three years building up a catalogue of hits and a fan base that hung off their every word, the five-some felt a renewed sense of hope about the future. Formed in 2016, PRETTYMUCH has been hustling since their inception. Early singles like “Would You Mind” and “Teacher” got them noticed by popheads and critics alike, with The New York Times declaring, “The singing is mature, the attitude is poised, the eyes are on history”; later projects, like 2019’s Phases and INTL:EP, helped them achieve liftoff, building on the strong musical roots they’d set down for themselves as they worked their way to the top. They have sold out two headline tours, opened for Khalid and were named Artists to Watch by Rolling Stone, MTV, Los Angeles Times, and Billboard honoring them in their “21 Under 21” list three years in a row. They have partnered with A-list brands such as Puma, Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, Moncler, FujiFilm, Hollister, and more. To date, the band have accumulated more than 1 billion audio and video streams, with a combined social following of 6.3 million. Today, PRETTYMUCH are eager to talk about signing with Sire Records for their new EP, Smackables, which embraces intentionality and purpose as the driving musical force, bringing together the best of pop, R&B, rap, rock, electronic, soul, and singer-songwriter. With more music on the way as 2021 unfolds, PRETTYMUCH is starting the year off on the strongest foot possible, with sights set on dropping this project and returning to the road soon in the hopes of reuniting with their loyal fans to share new music with them in person.
