Listening Post

This new track from Yorkshire band Drahla will destroy your weekend hangover

Listen to 'Faux Text', a new song from the threesome, coming out on the Too Pure Singles Club next month

There’s a reason we regularly find ourselves writing the sentence “recorded at Suburban Home studios, Leeds, with MJ from Hookworms.”

It’s not only because it’s a local institution and go-to place for decent DIY bands from the surrounding area, but also that the scene around those parts is currently flourishing.

The latest band to catch our ear is Drahla – a three-piece from Leeds and Wakefield.

After releasing a couple of tracks – check out the excellent ‘Fictional Decision’ – they’re the next artist lined up to put out a track via Too Pure Singles Club. ‘Faux Text’ will be available on 28 April, but you can listen to it below.

Co-vocalists Rob Riggs and Luciel Brown join forces on the track which builds to a clattering conclusion.

There’s more information too, here, on Too Pure Singles Club. They’ve already put out some great stuff this year, including this track from Unqualified Nurse Band.
