About Pretty Lightning
The creation of the German duo Pretty Lightning can be described as blues rock – but only on condition that you can imagine something like this under the experiment and postpunkově raw sound. If we in the vibrant colors of the 1960s are stirring a lot of black, you could talk about the psychedelic. Indeed, as guitarist and singer Christian Berghoff and drummer Sebastian Haas also acts in the “postpsychedelických” Datashock. Due to the dark atmosphere and a certain mantričnosti, but also offer other links: delta blues, Cramps or Australian rock group the type of Crime and the City Solution. This whole romantic pedigree, however, is subject to rigorous minimalism, the voice is dwindling in reverb and everything is always a bit distorted. The result can be with regard to the monotonous pace described as emotional and lethargic at the same time. The project aroused great attention to the album There Are Witches in the Woods, released in 2012 on the Finnish label Fonal.
