The pretty reckless (TPR) started in 2009, led by former Gossip Girl actress Taylor Momsen. “Raspy vocals that sound like she smokes a pack a day,” are ways to describe her unique voice, along with a rebellious, rock and roll on-stage presence.
Her bandmates, who are often overlooked are just as talented as the leading lady of the group and as a unit are quite possibly, one of the most exciting live bands you can see!
Part of the UK tour, the band performed at the O2 Forum in Kentish town, which meant that it would be one hell of a gig.
The night’s setlist was a mix of their newer and earlier material with tracks like ‘My Medicine’ and ‘living in the storm’ all being well received.
15 songs were sung all in all and with the final song (‘Take me down’), the crowd demanded an encore, chanting and clapping till TPR satiated the crowd, with a rendition of ‘Fucked up world’. With an impressive drum solo by Jamie Perkins, the TPR knew how to put on a show- with an adrenaline rush that screamed of rock.
