Pretty Girls' Ideal Night: "Tacos, Whiskey, and Playing Terrible '80s Songs on the Jukebox"

In the summer of 2012, drummer Brandon Seymour and guitarist Bobby Maloy, two guys with a common musical vision (if you will), created a garage band. They named their project in honor of the most likable things in the world -- after cute kitties and chubby babies, of course -- Pretty Girls.

The Boca-based indie duo became a solid trio with singer, bassist, and pretty girl Kyla Bostick. Maloy formerly played in punk-ska outfit R!M, and Seymour still gets funky with HVY CRM, PG, and Misfits tribute band Horror Business. Though this is Bostick's first band, Seymour says, "I think she's doing a great job." And when you hear their tracks, you know what he means. There's noting like adding a bad babe's vocals to dirty rock 'n' roll to make your head bounce with your butt.

We spoke with Seymour about his distaste for dubstep, love of cheesy '80s tunes, the perks of having a lady singer, and actual lookers.
