Today sees Leeds-formed art-rock 3-piece Drahla share their latest single, Lip Sync, ahead of their long-awaited EU tour. The release follows on from the surprise release of the band’s previous single, Under The Glass, last year – which was their first new material since their acclaimed 2019 debut album, Useless Co-ordinates.
Nodding towards a potential second album, Lip Sync is an alluring slice of post-punk. Speaking of the track, the band state:
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 single arrives accompanied by its music video, filmed, edited and directed by the band’s own Luciel Brown and Rob Riggs, inspired by Bruce Nauman’s 1969 visual piece of the same name.
The band will begin their EU tour on February 14th in Rotterdam, with Crows, and also stop off in Arlon, Belgium and Lille, France with Preoccupations.
