Drahla’s new EP, “Third Article”, coming out at the back end of November, Recorded with Hookworm’s MJ, “Third Article” showcased why this Leeds-based trio are so hotly tipped, and why excellent Canadian racket makers Metz took them along on a European tour.

The lushly-produced EP showcased the band’s gentle evolution into a unique and formidable act, mixing the no-wave energy of post-punk with the creativity and angularity of art-rock. Opening track, Form Of Luxury, is one of the year’s great statement of intents; squalling, swirling guitar lines joined by crisp drum battering and languid bass, before Lucile Brown’s anxious, spirited vocal enters, and blows the whole thing apart. Elsewhere, Silk Spirit fused gritty swagger with wonderfully jagged guitar noise, while New Living Creation adds some bonkers saxophone to the mix and comes out reminding us just how exciting Your Code Name Is: Milo sounded when they first burst onto the scene. Bristling with energy and ideas, Third Article shows Drahla to be one of the most ambitious and intriguing newcomers of 2017: utterly thrilling.


All tracks written and performed by Luciel Brown, Rob Riggs and Mike Ainsley.
Saxophone written and performed by Christopher Duffin.
Additional guitar on Circuit by Mr J.
Recorded by Matthew Johnson at Suburban Home Studios, Leeds, July 2017.
