Pretty & Nice aren't just a band. They're the two platitudes most people end up dating. What's she like? Well, she's pretty and nice. You don't necessarily date hot and dangerous. You might not have a chance with super-attractive and brilliant. You've maybe been down the road with mercurial and batshit crazy. Be honest: You probably settle down with pretty and nice.
The funny thing is, girls and pop songs are never that straight forward. Pretty & Nice have a razor edge you wouldn't expect from a band with a name that connotes sharing feelings and dinner dates at mid-level American chain restaurants. You might not introduce this band to your mother. This song might not feel very comfortable sitting at a dinner table and smiling at the small-talk. This song might say something inappropriate.
"Tora Tora Tora" grabs you by the wrist and tugs you exactly where you want to go. It's garage-pop, if there is such a thing. It sounds like Locksley playing Bikini Kill songs. That is, oddly, meant as a compliment. Rip right along.
