2019 saw The Pretty Visitors burst onto the scene with the release of four demos, well received with features on BBC Introducing and huge headline shows at The Wedgewood Rooms (Portsmouth), The Joiners (Southampton) and Heartbreakers (Southampton), amongst notable support slots with artists such as Circa Waves, Jaws, The Family Rain, Sisteray and Cassia.
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. 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.
The intentions are clear, The Pretty Visitors aren’t here to mess around.
Enter: ‘Head in the Sand’, the second single from the band. Receiving support from Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music a month prior to release, “The Pretty Visitors are clever, articulate, and overall outstanding in this indie rock anthem”, providing “explicit and uncensored brilliance” (RGM). The new single has been received with open arms, propelling the new direction of the band straight into the fast lane.
“Imagine Joy Division with Mike Skinner replacing Ian Curtis. It works brilliantly.” (Halfway 2 Nowhere).
