TERROR JR Calls Out Society’s Ugliness in “Pretty” Music Video for Upcoming Atlantic Records Debut Release “Unfortunately”

2 min read

Pop duo Terror Jr have released “Pretty,” their latest single from upcoming album Unfortunately, Terror Jr, out January 25th via Atlantic Records. Calling out society’s ugly obsession with youth, “Pretty juxtaposes delicate melodies and glittering beats with gruesome reality, showing that beauty is only skin deep.

“It’s painful chasing something that inherently can’t last . . . But we all do it . . . And we shame ourselves for it . . . The never-ending cycle of vanity and fuckery . . . Rinse and repeat,” says the inscrutable band.

 

“Pretty” is one of 15 tracks listed on their full-length album Unfortunately, Terror Jr, which also includes  “A-OK (Everything’s Perfect)” and the socio-political anthem “Heaven Wasn’t Made For Me.” These tracks shamelessly confront the themes of women’s reproductive rights, LGBT rights and substance abuse while highlighting what VICE described as Terror Jr’s ability to be “danceable and political all at once,” and whose “airy keys and romantic melodies will sweep you off your feet before you spend too long reflecting on the apocalypse.”

Once rumored to be fronted by Kylie Jenner, the enigma surrounding the band is apparent. Unfortunately, Terror Jr follows the band’s critically-lauded Bop City trilogyBop City, Bop City 2: TerroRising, and Bop 3: The Girl Who Cried Purple. With over 190 million streams, 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and a performance at Lollapalooza 2018, Terror Jr has garnered praise from The New York Times, Interview, V Magazine, Teen Vogue, High Snobiety, Pitchfork, and The Fader among others.
