Pretty Scary's debut album 'But It's True Even If It Didn't Happen' covers a lot of ground over ten tracks, each track bringing an unexpected turn. "I Ain't A Song" swings a little as the narrator spouts off about everything he isn't (a tree, a bug, etc.). "A Haunting Air... / Take You Back" made up of only guitars, bassy synth and drums that reverse into themselves. These are followed by the bare-bones Delta blues of "Do You See Me Everywhere?" and a bossanova-turned-epic-battle-in-the-heavens called "Yung Krul Krei". From here the genre-jumping continues, eventually unveiling deep, dancey grooves like "'Don't Betray Me!'" and "I'm Alright (Hold Me Up)" before ending on the weepily intimate "Kitchen".
