Rock band Picturesque is revealing its darker side with a haunting new single. The genre-blending “Crimes.”
On the new single, vocalist Kyle Hollis shares: “‘Crimes’ is our way of getting weird on this record and showing our listeners a new side of us they haven’t heard. We wanted to think outside the box and I feel like we created something exciting and fresh.
The band returns to the stage this month for a brief headline tour with Makari. The five date run includes stops in North Carolina, New York, and Richmond. Tickets are on-sale now and available at

Earlier this year Picturesque dropped their dark and deeply personal new single “Swipe,” which originally premiered on Rock Sound. The song followed last December’s “Pray,” a track that marked a new beginning for the band. Picturesque are embracing a new rule: brutal honesty, both musically and within their lives. No more thinly veiled metaphors, only the honest truth. “Pray” is their first foray into this territory, with devastating lyrics fueled by the recent break up of lead singer Kyle Holliswho, after 6 years in a committed relationship, ventured out into the world of dating apps in an attempt to beat loneliness. What he found was a culture fueled by one night hook-ups, ghosting and unbridled desperation. It’s a dark and shuddering rock song influenced by artists like blackbear and Post Malone – the first taste of what’s to come.
