Pretty Lightning

Pretty Lightning’s rural and heavy psychedelic blues is definitely southbound – not too sweaty Mississippi Juke Joints but to their sun-drenched hometown, located in south-west Germany, near the French border. Think of Christian handing over a cold beer to Sebastian after having finished an exhausting recording session and you might catch a glimpse of the general vibe.

But despite the sunny environment surrounding Pretty Lightning’s sound is more of a powerful dark affair. Pounding drums, muddy guitars and some ghostly vocals mixed all together and ready to put a spell on you!

Pretty Lightning’s feverish tunes are referencing electrified blues from fiery Hound Dog Taylor to sleepy Junior Kimbrough and are of course reminiscent of contemporaries like the Black Keys or Mr. Airplane Man.
