Pretty Sick – “Heaven”

Frank Lebon

In July, indie-grunge project Pretty Sick (the brainchild of Sabrina Fuentes) announced her debut album, Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile. Fuentes has shared a couple of distortion-heavy tracks from the album already, including lead single “Human Condition” and “Black Tar.” Now, Fuentes (who is “London-based” but “New York-rooted”) has a third offering from the record. This one’s called “Heaven,” and it’s likely to earn Fuentes some well-earned Courtney Love/Hole comparisons, given how it puts her throaty vocals front and center. By “Heaven”‘s end, Fuentes’ voice escalates to a full-on Brody Dalle screech, which I bet will be fun to see live.

Listen to “Heaven” below.
