Watch :: Pretty Vicious - National Plastics
Words: Linn Branson
Welsh lads Pretty Vicious may still be young in years (drummer Elliot Jones, still only 16) but within a year of forming have managed to rack up high-profile gigs supporting the Manic Street Preachers (to whom they have already been compared, along with Arctic Monkeys) at Cardiff Castle, signed to Virgin EMI at the start of 2015, played Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds festivals this year, and had their latest single 'National Plastics' chosen as Annie Mac's Hottest Record In The World on her Radio One show.
Latest in the Merthyr Tydfil four's plan for musical domination is the release of their first video - for 'National Plastics', which you can see below - and which was shot last month at Cardiff's Clwb Ifor Bach.
