Louder Than War’s Ioan Humphreys reviews the latest single from Drahla’s forthcoming LP

Drahla are due to release their latest LP Useless Coordinates on 3rd May 2019 on Captured Tracks. I reviewed their brilliant last single for Louder than War here which was amazing.

Their latest release is another slice of no wave-inspired skronk in the form of Pyramid Estate.

It’s a disjointed and a very free-form affair that you’d expect nothing less from Drahla. Immediate and spastic guitar bait-and-switch between laid back verses. These are, however, disrupted by loud and discordant experimental sax that builds to a crescendo for the final seconds.

This track may be short (1.54), yet it has a wealth of experience and influence that just cannot be measured. Drahla are one of the stand-out bands at the moment, if you are into your music served up with a no wave bent and an infectious disjointed track.
