Swipe right for this one! Yes, I am absolutely making a Tinder reference. For those of you not familiar with this location based mobile dating app, if you like a user (based on appearance), you swipe right and if you dislike, swipe left. If both swipe right, you are allowed to chat with each other. What has this dating world come to? That’s exactly what the lead singer of Picturesque, Kyle Hollis, wants to know.

Hollis, after getting out of a long term relationship faced a dating app based world that was much different from what he was used to. “Instead of getting the emotional connection you crave, it’s all about physical attention” he states. This song explores Hollis’ brutal honesty about the loneliness brought on by not being able to find the right person, essentially disappointed by one-night hookups, ghosting, and desperation. He further explains, “the gal in the video symbolizes the devil or temptation as well as all the gals the song is about. These girls would sort of ghost and and then reappear. Then they would try to seek affection.”  If anyone has dated in the last couple of years, I am sure you can relate. “Ghosting” wasn’t even a word in our vocabulary several years ago.

“Pray” is a dark and devastating song from this Lexington, KY foursome. Hollis has impressive vocal range equally matched by the instrumentation of Zach Williamson and Dylan Forrester on guitars, and Jordan Greenway on bass.  I really enjoyed it and felt the need to review it at first listen. Picturesque ends 2018 with their new rule of “brutal honesty, both musically and within their lives.” I look forward to the stories we will hear from them in 2019.
