South London’s moreish idols Drahla return with new single "Lip Sync" and announce first EU tour since 2019.
Leeds-formed art-rock outfit Drahla returned last year with the contorted thrill of "Under The Glass", their surprise first new material since an acclaimed debut LP "Useless Coordinates" and a cover of Psychic TV's "Godstar" landed in 2019. This week, ahead of a series of long awaited set EU dates, the band share a further new track with the alluring skronk and post-punk elasticity of "Lip Sync". Paired to a video filmed, edited and directed by the band's own Luciel Brown and Rob Riggs and inspired by the American mixed-media artist Bruce Nauman's 1969 visual piece of the same name.
The band had the following to say about their new single:
"Lip Sync is an autobiographical account of self deflection. It explores the idea of syncing to social norms, conversation and expressions to converse without being fully present - taking on a converged guise to fit different interactions."
The band will begin their EU dates on the 14th February in Rotterdam.
