The Pretty Blue Guns are four best friends who love making a noise. They have been playing shows all over South Africa for the past few years with some of the country’s top acts, ranging from small intimate theater shows to huge festivals. The band consists of Andre Leon (vocals/guitar), Brandon Visser (guitar), Gregory Thompson (bass), and Lucas Swart (drums/vocals). Their style has been described as “gritty blues rock”, with influences ranging from early Robert Johnson era blues and Tom Waits to modern rock giants such as The White Stripes or Kings Of Leon. The band recently finished their second album, Shed Your Skin, in April. Download the title track via soundcloud to check it out.
