Hampshire, U.K.-given birth to indie pop trio Blaenavon (pronounced bline-av-un) combine lively melodies and rhythms with adult lyrics and themes. Ben Gregory (vocals), Frank Wright (bass), and Harris McMillan (drums) fulfilled midway through supplementary college, where, upon finding their musical skills, quickly shaped a band; initially it was yet another method to have a great time, until they earned their final yr talent competition in 2013 — having a cover of Muse’s “Knights of Cydonia.” Having a newfound drive — and a newly inked recording cope with Transgressive — they released their debut EP, Koso, even while juggling their research and completing GCSE exams. More than the next 2 yrs, the music group prioritized their education, and even though they performed on the semi-regular basis they spent the majority of their period studying for his or her A Levels. When they completed the examinations they reunited on the full-time basis, creating their second EP, Miss Globe, by the finish of 2015. By the start of 2016 Blaenavon’s recognition was increasing, paving just how for a active touring timetable; their 2016 tour culminated within a string of festival performances, including displays at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Latitude, and SXSW. They spent the second option half of the entire year documenting — with Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Björk, Adele) — and their debut full-length, That’s Your Great deal, saw launch in early 2017.
