Chandra builds you up with new track ‘Pretty’

Bristol-based pop-rock artist Chandra is bold in both his music and his artist vision. He is able to uplift his audience with thoughtful topics and intimate performances. The artist writes the music he feels people need to hear, speaking on self-belief, building confidence and struggles with mental health. Chandra had a musical epiphany watching REM’s 1995 Monster Tour at Milton Keynes Bowl saying, “from then on I knew that all I wanted to do was perform my own songs live to thousands of people.”

Chandra has released an optimistic new single that champions self-love and being your own individual through a lens of a pop-rock anthem. ‘Pretty’ encourages you to accept yourself and others. Laid-back but complex drums, rhythmic electric guitars and dynamic bass backs up a vocal performance that shows off relatability lyricism and a passion for the subject.

Chandra explains the track, “We should all strive to create a world where we can simply be ourselves without prejudice. For me this stems all the way back to being a mixed race kid in school, being called racist slurs on a daily basis, through to being a teenager in a band, wearing eyeliner and having colour in my spiky hair (I felt like Camden Town was the only place in the country I didn't get stared at in disgust). Certainly my particular experience shows that we've progressed but we've still got a very long way to go. It's not about accepting any one particular 'thing' (be that spiky hair, a disability or how you identify); it's about challenging yourself to be more accepting of anything at all that you don't find 'pretty' and that you deem to be 'different'... even if you find it uncomfortable. Otherwise we'll never grow as a society.”
