Exclusive Premiere: Reckless Serenade, ‘Pretty Monster’
Hailing from Mahopac, N.Y. -- just outside of New York City -- indie rockers Reckless Serenade have been crafting their unique brand of pop-punk since forming in 2012. In 2014, they released their debut full-length record, Chasing Lights, and today (June 1), Diffuser is thrilled to debut their brand-new single, "Pretty Monster," a day before it hits the streets -- check it out in the audio player below.
“‘Pretty Monster’ is a song about the kind of girl that can totally destroy you -- she’s hot and she knows it,” frontman Cory Brent explains about the new track. “You know she’s trouble and in a weird way, it’s addicting. I think in writing this song, we have taken a significant step forward in discovering our sound. As far as the songwriting process goes, we tried writing the melody first, which is something new for us.”
He adds, “We feel like it really opened up a lot of creative options. In the past year, we’ve been more focused on workshopping our songs, and I think ‘Pretty Monster’ is the first song that has really benefited from that. All in all, it was just a super exciting and positive experience and we’re very proud of how it all came together. We’re just stoked that the moment has arrived and we can finally share this with everybody!”
