[song] Drahla – Under The Glass

Three years ago UK minimal post-punk outfit Drahla released their outstanding debut LP Useless Coordinates (through Captured Tracks) and now looks like they are gearing up to provide us with the follow-up.

No announcements have been made just yet, but we already have a stellar first single “Under The Glass” — a repetitive, cold and masterfully crafted cut.

Speaking of it, the band says: “‘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”.

Alongside the release, the group has also announced a set of their first live dates since 2019 (to be precise, nine hundred and ninety two days since their last live show) later this year in the UK (find more information about the tickets on the band’s website).
