An "Unruly Welsh Gang" moves into music.

Pretty Vicious

Pretty Vicious's new song "Move," which came out at the end of the summer, is said to be a great example of what's to come in the early months of 2019.

The foursome consists of Brad Griffiths, Elliot Jones, Jarvis Morgan, and Tom McCarthy. In true rock and roll fashion, when on the phone with Brad, he's unapologetically himself and talks passionately about what moves him and what he wants from the band going forward.

Lead vocals and guitar player, Brad Griffiths, explained that their punk rock stylings that come out in "Move" will be on full blast with the new album. Their first EP, "Cave Song" offers that same amount of gritty pop-rock, and since it's release in 2016, the band has been working to release their first full-length album, which is set to come out in the early stages of 2019.

Pretty Vicious, a band of four, hail from Merthyr Tydfil in the United Kingdom, and that's where a lot of their self-proclaimed "unruly Welsh" persona comes from and not as moody as other punk rock or alternative rock groups that have made their way over to the States. Brad said that instead of coming in as the other bands did with their moody tunes and looks, he wants America to see them as something more.

Even though their first album has yet be released, Pretty Vicious is in no way rookies to the music scene. They've opened for acts like Stereophonics and Noel Gallagher and have even played at Glastonbury Music Festival in Somerset, England which sees about 130,000 concert goes throughout five days. They've also had their songs, "Are You Ready For Me" and "Ain't No Fun" appear on different gaming soundtracks, and "Move" has earned its place on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Chart.

As the punk rock and Britpop lovers await the release of their new album, there is still plenty of Pretty Vicious music to hold them over until then.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
