The band I’ve been listening to a lot this past week is The Pretty Reckless. They are a hard rock band from New York that formed in 2009. What I really like about this group is how their music is a throwback to what rock music sounded like in the late 80s and early 90s. I would consider their music blues influenced hard rock music but they also have some really good acoustic songs. I also like the fact that they have a female lead singer who cites Joan Jett as an influence.
Led by Taylor Momsen, The Pretty Reckless has hit number 1 on the billboard music charts 3 times. It’s great to hear a rock band getting played on the radio because you don’t hear much newer rock on the radio unless it’s an indie station. I’m hoping that the growing popularity of The Pretty Reckless leads to more rock bands getting mainstream attention. Check them out:
