Ivey are back with a beat-laden new single, ‘Pretty Boys’, alongside news of a headline tour in support of the track.
‘Pretty Boys’ is a dreamy bubblegum-pop track. Its upbeat intro paves the way for sultry vocals from singer Millie Perks, as gentle electro beats uphold an air of levity. The song’s accompanying music video carries a similar vibe, keying in on the imagery of a stereotypical young girl’s bedroom.
Take a look at that video below:
In a press release, Perks declared the song to be dedicated “to all the single girls living their best lives, getting rid of the stereotypes, killing the label of ‘slut’ for girls who wanna have fun and sleep around, because it’s 2022 bish”.
Ivey’s ‘Pretty Boys’ tour will kick off on Thursday June 23 at Newcastle’s Hamilton Hotel. From there, the five-piece will saunter through Bondi, Wollongong, Melbourne and Byron Bay, before wrapping up at Brisbane’s Fellons Barrel House on Sunday July 9.
