High Vis have released a new single in the lead-up to their upcoming album Blending, which is out September 30 via Dais. It follows previous cuts ‘Trauma Bonds’, ‘Fever Dream’, ‘Talk For Hours’, and the title track. Check it out below.
“With the backdrop of a decade of austerity and neglect, ‘0151’ is a song about the power of collective identity,” frontman Graham Sayle explained in a statement. “Written after my uncle passed away during the pandemic, the song was inspired by tales of life as a ship builder and the subsequent decline of the industry in the North of England; a song about the landscape and communities from my formative years and our current socio-economic situation.”
Bassist Rob Moss added: “Liverpool is a city familiar with the receipt of bad news. Old grief within the North West breeds in its most mild form an inherited skepticism of authority. A scalable requirement to be outwardly disruptive and inwardly sensitive. A low key connectivity built through regional endurance. For me the song is about struggle and resilience against policies of social and economic abandonment.”
