Pretend Tapestry'd Life on 2LP
Playing together in some form since 2004, the four members of instrumental rock band Pretend share a common passion for possibilities in music. Dividing their time between the coasts of California in Los Angeles and Ventura, with one foot firmly planted in Thousand Oaks where they met and still write together, Pretend remains a definition of friendship, experimentation, and experience. Their second full length, Tapestry'd Life, finds the band pushing boundaries within their genre. Imposed hails, "Every chord and note is placed and strummed with reason and purpose ... [b]ut it is the smart assemblage of arrangements that make the entire experience feel like you were falling in love for the very first time over and over again for the duration."
