Blaenavon are set to release their new EP 'KOSO' through Transgressive on September 23rd.
Blaenavon are frighteningly young. Late last year Clash caught the band in action in London, with their army of fans cramming into a tiny basement venue. Looking around, it seemed as if no one - not one person - had yet sat their GCSEs...
But then, with youth comes ambition. Signing to Transgressive, Blaenavon are making enormous steps with new EP 'KOSO' due to be released on September 23rd. Lead cut 'Prague' has already emerged online.
There are comparisons to Foals, perhaps, in the off kilter manner that the song is constructed, but Ben Gregory's voice has a powerful sense of drama which is all their own.
Listen to it below.
