Blaenavon stream new ‘Miss World’ EP in full

With every member of the band having now finished school and a record deal with Transgressive signed, Blaenavon are set to release new EP ‘Miss World’, produced by David Pye (Wild Beasts, Egyptian Hip Hop) and mixed by Dan Grech (Radiohead, Wolf Alice, Circa Waves) on 30th October.

Written and recorded in a half-term holiday, ‘Miss World’ showcases Blaenavon as one of the UK’s genuinely special bands and reflects the meticulous intelligence and ambition of these masterful artists. Opener ‘Hell Is My Head’ is a rancid portrayal of mythical love and lust and sees the group fine-tune their penchant for huge melody and an individual attention to the finer details of indie rock. ‘Hell Is My Head’ has become a firm fan favourite and received sweeping support from BBC Radio 1, Beats 1, BBC 6 Music, Radio X, Absolute and
Amazing Radio. ‘Destiny’s Mild’ is a tapestry of sounds and ideas seeing singer Ben address fears of being too comfortable in one’s own state of mind. And then there’s ‘Dragon’, a mercilessly intense yet beautiful record and a harbinger of what’s to come from this brilliant band!
