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.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
