Pryti is a true independent artist, having written, sang, and played guitar and bass on all songs from her current album ‘Tales Of A Melancholic‘. In keeping with her DIY ethos, Pryti also set up her own label ‘Welcome To Pariahville’, which houses all of her releases. Musically, Pryti is inspired by the low slung groove of the Deftones and the contagious hooks of Paramore. The end result is nothing short of engulfing. This intoxicating sound has earned Pryti many plaudits and accolades, and is one to watch out for.
