Bella Venuti has form as part of Melbourne band IV League and prettything is another avenue for her work – expressly not a side project but a separate outlet. prettything has just released a dream pop single ‘One More July’ and it is a luminescent delight.
‘One More July’ has at its a heart a driving synth beat and Venuti’s vocals are gorgeous: haunting and melancholic with a subtle and delicate melody. Of the single, she says:
One More July’ reflects on the way that memories and regrets can be drummed up by the arrival of a season or time in the year. Like a lot of my writing, I wanted to evoke a wistful sense of nostalgia. It’s quite a bittersweet little tune.
The song is accompanied by a suitably wistful video which captures the mood perfectly:
Absorbing and delectable dream pop. The single is out now through Ditto and you can download/stream here.
