Canadian band Dizzy caught our attention back in December with their single 'Swim', and it's been a long few months waiting to hear their next move. That has finally arrived today in the form of the subtly elaborate single 'Pretty Thing'.

Showing understanding of texture and levels, 'Pretty Thing' has layers of reverbed guitars, drum machine, and noodling bass all sitting perfectly together to create a soft and dreamy pop-rock song. Singer Katie Munshaw then sashays her way into this classy composition to flit around and describe momentary scenes and images, suggesting a bigger and deeper feeling of love, nostalgia and compassion all rolled into one - it's a testament to her abilities as a singer and writer, especially when you consider she wrote it shortly after finishing school.

She says of the song: "I wrote ‘Pretty Thing’ shortly after graduating high school. I think high school is traditionally remembered as a bad experience, and when I say mine wasn't, it's usually met with an eyeroll. ‘Pretty Thing’ was me saying, ‘No, this time of my life was beautifully heartbreaking, loving, and the friends I made have made me better. This is how I will remember them. This was a good thing.”

Listen to 'Pretty Thing' below.

Dizzy have signed to Communion Records and promise news of a debut album in the near future. They'll be heading to the UK for the first time in May to play a couple of dates:

16th May – Omeara, London (w/ Nombe, San Scout, and Aaron Taylor)
18th May – The Great Escape, Brighton
