Kicking off 2020 with a headline set at Ice Breaker Festival (Portsmouth), a live performance on BBC Radio Kent and a self-curated live session filmed in a church, the year started brightly for The Pretty Visitors.
February saw the release of the highly acclaimed, debut studio single Mystery Woman; receiving airtime on The Chris Moyles Show (Radio X), This Morning (ITV 1) and BBC Introducing.
Covid-19 soon put a halt to the band’s plans with UK & European dates and festival slots in the pipeline, however, the pandemic didn’t hinder their progress…enter: ‘Head in the Sand’, the band’s second single. Having received support from BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing, 3RRR, Orbital Radio and other reputable press outlets, ‘Head in the Sand’ has been dubbed as an ‘indie anthem’, delving into the world of ‘Blur, Kasabian, Fontanes D.C, Joy Division and The Streets’. The single has been received with open arms, reaching audiences in the UK, EU, Australia, Brazil, USA and Canada, propelling the new direction of the band straight into the fast lane.
Now rolling into another year, The Pretty Visitors have focussed energy into their third studio single ‘Western Skies’, thoroughly believing it’s their best single yet. Recorded at the legendary East Cote Studios, London (Yungblud, The Snuts, Mumford & Sons, Mark Ronson, Rita Ora, Skepta) Western Skies poetically depicts the story of everyday small-town life. Under the backdrop of a grooving bassline that sticks to your chest, driving drums that rattle your feet, and smooth, anthemic guitars to caress your mind. The chorus’ build and build to the point of boiling, teasing the listener for another round, making this song stadium ready for when live music returns.
The intentions are clear, The Pretty Visitors aren’t here to mess around.
