Bio:
SILAS AND GEE FORMED IN 2008 AS THE MEMBERS OF A BAND CALLED PRETTYHIDEOUS. AS A MIXED MEDIA PROJECT COMBINING BOTH AUDIO AND VISUAL, THEY WORK TOGETHER LIKE A ROWING TEAM, BLENDING INFLUENCES THAT EXTEND THEIR ROOTS FROM HIP-HOP MIXTAPES TO INDIE FILM.
 PRETTYHIDEOUS IS A MOVIE IN REVERSE: WHERE IN A MOVIE, THE SOUNDTRACK UNDERSCORES THE FILM, HERE THE FILM AND IMAGES GIVE THE ‘SOUNDTRACK’ ITS RATHER WEIGHTY BOTTOM-END AND THEREFORE THE BALAST IT REQUIRES TO ENTERTAIN AND INFORM ON A LEVEL THAT IS RARELY ACHIEVED IN CINEMA OR MUSIC ALONE.
 THIER FIRST ALBUM ‘BALANCE’ IS TITLED AS A SELF-TITLED ALBUM WOULD BE, IN THAT THE WORD ‘PRETTYHIDEOUS’ ALONE MEANS BALANCE. IT’S A REPRESENTATION OF BOTH SIDES ON A COIN. THE UP AND THE DOWN. LIGHT AND SHADOW. THE PLACE WHERE EACH OF US DECIDE WHAT WE’RE ATTRACTED TO MOST AND HOW WE CHOOSE TO LIVE. WHAT MUSIC WE LISTEN TO. THE ART THAT DRAWS US IN. THE PEOPLE WE ASSOCIATE WITH AND WHAT WE DO WITH THEM. SIMPLY, AS IT’S MEANT TO BE PUT, THE WORD PRETTYHIDEOUS IS AS CLEAN OF A REPRESENTATION OF LIFE AS THEY COULD CREATE. LIFE AS THEY UNDERSTAND IT. LIFE NOT LIMITED TO, BUT INCLUDING THOSE AROUND THEM.
