"Kill Miss Pretty Press Quotes"

New Times Magazine cover story

KMP's debut LP, Permission for Strange, [is] A subtly rousing affair that managed to be both über-cool and illicitly heated, it showed a band hell-bent on forging its own place in the pop pantheon with a spectacular set of tools. Led by the slithery single "Drawing Pictures of Haunted Houses With You," the album hinges on machine-gun beats, gutter-drenched riffs, and the voice of an angel who seems to have just crawled up from under your skin. In other words, Strange is the kind of deep, dark amalgam of electro-punk, glam, and power pop that makes you want to put on loud colors and lurk at a full moon.

"Rock Band of the Year 2008"

City Link / Metromix


"The group's recent CD, "Permission for Strange," presents a band in full, capturing the playful energy of its live performances, the musicians' confident songwriting (particularly on the single "Drawing Pictures of Haunted Houses With You") and the singer's coquettish charisma."

City Link Magazine


"lead singer, Alicia Olink, was (and still is, in fact) seen as an indie darling on the rise. With a voice that's part nursery-school and part raunch, Olink is charismatic and alluring enough vocally to create a buzz all on her own"

"..the catchy and well-composed songs on Permission for Strange [are] that much more impressive. He [Rogers] and Olink, along with their bassist, Martin Davis, have recently crafted one of the darkest and edgiest electro-pop albums to come out of South Florida in recent memory. Both the song-writing and musicianship displayed on Permission are stronger than their previous 2006 EP, Bite Your Tongue, and Olink's subject matter digs further into real-life taboos."

"Taking the trio’s over-the-top “theme” shows into consideration, Kill Miss Pretty could carve out a future in college radio"

Jason Strout
Orlando Weekly


"...concentrating on anything other than the trio proved difficult. I'm a sucker for a carnival-like atmosphere, so the band piqued my curiosity when it took the stage dressed in an Alice in Wonderland theme. Alicia wore a scandalously short Alice costume, which she claimed to have made herself, Russ dressed up as the Mad Hatter and Davis wore a head-to-toe rabbit costume."

Dan Sweeney
City Link Magazine


"Blending influences like Nirvana, the Moldy Peaches, Fugazi and PJ Harvey with programmed drums gives KMP's rock sound a macabre but strangely sexy electro edge."

Alex Calise
Sun-Sentinel


"Their cover of Nirvana's "Negative Creep" was the highlight, in my opinion. This version, along with their entire sound, was a unique and quirky synthesis of electronic and rock done in a way that you don't hear every day. It would be tough to accurately describe this band without using the word "gimmick." With the wrong definition of this word, it could be perceived as negative, so let me make clear the definition I choose: "an ingenious or novel device, scheme, or stratagem, esp. one designed to attract attention or increase appeal." A sexy, scantily clad girl surrounded by a bassist and guitarist, both dressed like ninjas, certainly fits this description in a brilliant and effective way."

Eric Bundy
Rag-O-Rock Magazine


Boca Raton's Kill Miss Pretty was fronted by a bouncy, pig-tailed Alicia Olink. She was well-aware of the power her appearance held over the audience... Olink was dressed more like a Girl Scout than a yogi. But that was the band's shtick that evening — two Girl Scouts and one Boy Scout (though Olink was the only female band member)... despite the drum machine beats, KMP's music was, at its core, rock.

Kill Miss Pretty got it [the crowd] energized with a set that was equal parts sloppy feedback and catchy melody.

Bio

Spooky, punky, electro-popsters, Kill Miss Pretty spin their web of sound any way they choose, blending Rock, electronics, synthesis, sex, groove and FUN into an over-the-top feast for the senses. Comprised of married super-duo Alicia "the Flexible" (Industrial Nation cover girl) on vocals, Russ (Cleopatra Records' Numb Ones) on Guitar/Synth/Programming, and all around wonder-chum Martin on bass, KMP has taken off on a fantastical journey that could lead them just about anywhere. Fans of the Faint and Jucifer will revel in KMP delectable grooves, while affecionados of fugazi-tinged razor guitar will find them irresistable.

The press has had some favorable offerings for our uninhibited threesome:

With the release of their first short film, "RED", and their debut EP "Bite Your Tongue" on Soularise Records, KMP established a sound and style all their own. In 2008 the CD "Permission For Strange", video single for "Drawing Pictures of Haunted Houses With You", and continued select performances throughout Florida, ultimately landed them "Best Rock Band 2008" (City Link/Metromix).

"The group's recent CD, "Permission for Strange," presents a band in full, capturing the playful energy of its live performances, the musicians' confident songwriting (particularly on the single "Drawing Pictures of Haunted Houses With You") and the singer's coquettish charisma."

2009 promises to be just as juicy with a brand new single and video this spring, and special live performances. Catch them while you can - and tell them Alice sent you.
