Yes, holy shit it’s August. Yes, I know this year has gone by crazy fast. No, I’m no less terrified of the future and growing old than anyone else. But you know what, let’s just listen to some music, shall we?
Hampshire wunderkinder Blaenavon have been on the scene since 2013. With their more than convincingly weird twitter account and a reputation for some of the best live shows you can see in dingy pubs as well as bigger venues they now have an album coming up. And for the people who are just as excited about that as me, they’ve brought out another single I’ll have on repeat for at least two weeks.
A bit of The Smiths, a bit of the Cure, a lot of bittersweet happiness and melancholy on summer evenings and a “let’s pray for death” chant to match it all. It’s Let’s Pray.
