Blaenavon, a new three-piece from Hampshire, announce the release of
A-Side ‘Into the Night' and B-Side ‘Denim Patches' for Transgressive
imprint paradYse on the 11th March.
Blaenavon's line-up is; Ben Gregory (Vocals. Age16), Frank Wright (Bass.
Age17) and Harris McMillan (Drums.Age16). Blaenavon's songs are
suffused with need and vulnerability, the music leaves itself open, waiting
to be approached and ultimately the beauty of both tracks come from their
‘Into the Night', a song about isolation and loss is a startlingly controlled
introduction to Blaenavon, with a poetic fragility and an exciting panache that
enthralls and makes for a truly rewarding listen.
There is a stillness and hush to ‘Denim Patches', which follows the
reparation of a relationship, the uplifting-melancholia of Ben's vocals are
absorbing, affecting and mature beyond his years.
The band will play a single launch show at The Buffalo Bar on the 21st
