About The Track: Taken from the band's debut EP, 'The ÉP', 'Beautiful' is a dynamic track that runs on big riffs, and juggles gruff screamo vocals with melodic interjections and spoken word utterings. 'The ÉP' is available now for free download viaa Pulo Revé's website.
The Band Explains: "'Beautiful' is the earliest and oldest song on our record, chronologically dating about three years prior to all the others. When we first wrote 'Beautiful' -- before we were Pulo Revé -- it stood out for us as a point in our musical career when we felt we had honed a particular sound from which we could easily branch out or upon which we could build. As such it is probably the most accessible musically, with much less experimentalism, but we feel it offers a moment of childlike innocence, because it's a song that's travelled with us for so long.
It's still got the same lyrics it did when we were kids (despite Osh flirting with the idea of changing them; maturing them), and as such the message -- the frustration of a young but passionate relationship constantly moving through the turbulence of adolescence -- plays a vital role in our LP (é - 22/09/15) because it is the natural first step before the record develops into a more mature understanding of the natural chaos of human nature (especially when in love).
The video for Beautiful started out as something to accompany our live set but when we saw the performance that Jo (actor) gave and the camera work that George (filmmaker) naturally devised throughout the shot, not to mention the fact that the whole video is both natural and improvised, and done in one take, we realised this was the perfect accompaniment with which to release the song. It's through the eyes of lover, watching the spontaneity of the person they love as they move from interaction to distraction, happiness to sadness, intoxication to sobriety. It's an attempt at saying that whilst we may look back on the melodramatic relationships of our younger years unfavourably, we do not have to dismiss these, but rather learn from them so we may better understand how human connection must work. It seemed like a good idea at the time."
