Apple Music has become quite the eye-opener for me and I have discovered some decent music in recent weeks and so artists as well. None, however, compare to The Pretty Reckless who have made 3 albums to date and whose music has grabbed me as many of the best from my past did.
While at work I happened to hear the song below through Apple Music, a radio station I think, and I was hooked from the first second and even more so at 57 seconds. And so the song continued and so I become hooked.
The off thing with a streaming service is that in an instant I had access to the complete catalogue and could dive in to the works of this band to see if they were a one song pony. They have turned out to be far from that.
I can hear Queen, No Doubt, 4 Non Blondes, Poison and so many other influences here, but done in a way that is still original and above all, very well crafted. I should say that they are probably huge and I have just lost touch with reality due to my age…
I have been on the fence about music streaming services for some time and despite finding a new artist that I truly appreciate, I do wonder if me listening to these tracks many times over actually gives them any tangible reward for their craft. I suspect not.
