Drahla returns with new single ‘Under The Glass’ and announces a UK tour

Leeds punks Drahla are back today (22nd August) with new single ‘Under The Glass’, their first new music in three years.

The new music comes alongside details of the band’s first UK tour of 2019, which kicks off in Brighton next month. It is the follow-up to their first album, “Useless Coordinates”.

“‘Under the Glass’ represents a moment of creative reconnection, almost a sense of euphoria in the darkest moments – a welcome, if small, relief from reality,” the band said of their new material in a statement.

“The song is a collage, reworking early 2020 ideas with later work, connecting time, literally and musically.”

They added: “The lyrics are deliberately vague, using metaphor to interpret personal experience and feelings of loss and grief.”

Listen to “Under the Glass” below.

Drahla’s UK tour includes six dates in mid-September, including a concert in London on September 20 at the Bermondsey Social Club.

Accompanying the tour is the tag line: “992 days later, Drahla returns to the stage”, hinting at her long absence.

Reviewing Drahla’s debut LP ‘Useless Coordinates’ following its release in 2019, NME said: “Despite its monochromatic aesthetic and honesty, ‘Useless Coordinates’ strays from mimicking the hackneyed past.

“Drahla’s melodies are knobby and can’t be fitted at all costs; warped pop songs emerge from the gloom. This is a delicate debut that lies in sharp control and is hardly chaos.”
