REVIEW | Pretty Little Enemy – Second Load


Hailing from Somerset, Pretty Little Enemy have been quick to establish themselves as one of the brightest prospects to emerge from the south west of the country, and they’re ready to validate their status with a brand new EP – Second Load – the follow-up to their 2016 release B*tch Please!

They waste little time and go all in with Get A Grip, a frantic and pumped up opener with a sweet chorus donning some memorable lyrics. We get more of the same in their upcoming single Collide, which stands out with a brisk beat and stirring vocals.

The guitar work is the most eminent factor in Play By The Rules, with crunchy riffs littered throughout and they even make space for a concise but ripping solo in the middle for good measure. The momentum carried from the very beginning remains stable as they finish off in fiery fashion with It’s All Just A Show.

A short, to the point record that makes the most of its brief duration. Nothing complex by any means, but a wild ride nonetheless that is tonnes of fun and worth repeated listens.
