Prides are my newest hype of the day, simply because they are amazing. They are the all boy version of Chvrches, one might say, both being from Glasgow, they have a few things in common already. Prides make anthemic electro pop that surges through your every vein, it would be difficult not to get swept up by them.
Their first release, Out Of The Blue, is a beauty. Simply put it’s an earworm that you’ll be hitting the repeat button for over and over again after the first listen. It’s silky synth laden beats and stylish melodies, insanely catchy hooks and lush vocals, just make you wonder why you haven’t come across this band sooner. And if that’s not enough for you, they are even giving away the song for free download just as long as you sign up to their mailing list, I mean it’s a no-brainer, right? They are something really special and I cannot wait to hear more from them.
If you want to see them live, then your in luck, they have a few live dates coming up over the next few months, sadly all are in Scotland, but lucky if you live around that area. But I’m pretty sure after hearing their first release, they have a very promising future ahead of them and are sure to be soon playing shows all over the country.
