The Pretty Visitors are back with their new track ‘High Sailing Blues’, the latest in a string of 2019 releases from the Portsmouth four-piece.

With extensive support from BBC Introducing, the band are building a reputation on the local live scene with support slots to the likes of Circa Waves, Sisteray and Cassia. True to its name, ‘High Sailing Blues’ is a blues rock track driven by a catchy guitar riff and powerhouse, rasping lead vocal.

Of the single, the band say: “The lyrics just flew onto the page without thinking, really summing up a theme of monomania, with the dark depths of the ocean and the madness it can bring providing a backdrop.

“Musically we kept it simple and let the blues do the talking. Four chords, three verses and pure feeling. It’s still a favourite to play live and a good one to go a bit crazy to.”
