High Vis have released their new single 0151, titled after the landline dialling code for Liverpool/Merseyside. 

“With the backdrop of a decade of austerity and neglect, 0151 is a song about the power of collective identity,” explains frontman Graham Sayle. “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.”

“Liverpool is a city familiar with the receipt of bad news,” adds bassist Rob Moss. “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.”

High Vis‘ new album Blending is due for release on 9th September 2022 via Dais Records, available to pre-order HERE
