Transgressive-signed teenagers Blaenavon have unveiled ‘ Let’s Pray’, the second track from their much-anticipated debut album with Grammy-winning producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Bombay Bicycle Club, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Bjork), alongside news of their biggest headline show to date, further festival dates, and a lengthy UK support tour.
‘Let’s Pray’ is a massive, emotive and bold statement of intent from the Hampshire three-piece on top of their game. Blaenavon’s dark romanticism exudes lonesome warmth – reminiscent of The Smiths and The Cure – and self-assured, mellifluous tendencies. Singer Ben Gregory says the following about the new single: “When the best songs have all already been written, order yourself a smile and a steak – equally as rare – chew with your mouth closed and your hands in your pockets and wait… Wait for sanity. She’ll settle up.”
‘Let’s Pray’ and previous single ‘I Will Be The World’ are the first new tracks from Blaenavon since their acclaimed 2015 “Miss World” EP. ’I Will Be The World’ caught the attention of Zane Lowe at this year’s SXSW, who convinced label Transgressive to let him play an unfinished version of the track on his Beats 1 show and declared them “one of the most talked about, breakthrough bands” playing the festival.
Furthermore, after a sell out run of shows at London’s Waiting Room. Lexington and Dingwalls, Blaenavon are set for their biggest headline performance to date at The Scala on October 14th.
