New York-based band PRETTY SICK are the modern-day Riot Grrrls that transport us back to the peak era of punk rock. With a dream-like spin on the revered genre, and an authentic sense of admiration for those who have stood before them, Pretty Sick are excessively deserving of a position in your music collection.

Ladies of Pretty Sick introduce yourselves …

Sabrina: I’m Sabrina, I play bass and sing.

Ella: I’m Ella, I play guitar and sing.

Eva: I play drums.

How did the band meet?

Sabrina: Me and Eva met when we were 12 and 13 at Rock Camp and then maybe a year and a half later we met Ella and formed our holy trinity.

What are the creative dynamics of the band? Who writes the songs, music, etc.?

Sabrina: I write the lyrics for the most part and we work on the music together.
