Leeds-formed art-rock outfit Drahla return with the contorted thrill of ‘Under The Glass’, their first new material since acclaimed debut LP Useless Coordinates and a cover of Psychic TV’s ‘Godstar’ landed in 2019.
On the themes behind the new single, the band say “‘Under the Glass’ represents a moment of creative reconnection, almost a sense of euphoria in the darkest moments – an awaited, yet slight, respite from reality. The song is a collage, reworking early ideas from 2020 with newer work – bridging the gap of time, in the literal sense as well as musically. The lyrics are deliberately vague, using metaphor to interpret personal experience and emotion of loss and grief.”
Drahla have established themselves as a formidable and distinctive band with a fervent live act that has seen them share stages with Parquet Courts, METZ, Ought, Buzzcocks, The Cribs and more. In what will mark nine hundred and ninety two days since their last live show, the band will return to the live stage in September in the UK for a short run of dates, performing early favourites and debuting further new material to an audience for the first time.
