Fifties pop harmonies, lofi mids-driven guitar, and the fuzziest wooly mammoth of a bass tone possibly ever recorded in the Provinces form the latest single from Ontario garage rock band Royal Castles. “Frickin Pretty” is a quirky party tune that is one part 50s doo-wop, two ounces modern indie pop, and a splash of 90s/2000s nostalgia layered in a hot pink goblet, topped with a maraschino cherry and floral cocktail umbrella. Shake well for a feel good week-ending mix.
The music video, set in one of Canada’s last movie rental shops, is bright and energetic, and we would absolutely believe it if you told us it was the opening scene for a new Katherine Heigl or Lana Condor rom com. Kudos to the whole team for the production of a fun, high quality video that really shines with the track.
