Today’ song is Pretty Monster” by Reckless Serenade. Hailing from Mahopac, New York, the group is comprised of Cory Brent (vocals), Mark Neidhardt (guitar), Matt Ruggiero (drums), and Steve Zeiss (bass). The band just released a new video for “Pretty Monster”. Filmed over 36 consecutive hours, the video premiered on Substream, who called the song “a solid blend of ’90s alt-rock, mid-’00s post-hardcore and a sick sense of groove” while saying the video is “risque and bloody.”
Taking influences from bands like Foo Fighters, Angels and Airwaves, Taking Back Sunday, Blink 182, Manchester Orchestra, and Explosions in the Sky, Reckless Serenade melds their own brand of Pop Punk with an Indie and Alternative rock. They remind me of early Fall Out Boy and hit the listener hard with their thumping rock intro and smooth melodies. This band is definitely one to watch.
