Transgressive's most recent signing Blaenavon is Ben Gregory (vocals), Frank Wright (bass) and Harris McMillan (drums). All nineteen in age, Blaenavon have something to be both proud of and excited for: the October 30/15 release of their new EP entitled Miss World.
"Dragon" hails off of that very EP. Produced by David Pye (Wild Beasts, Egyptian Hip Hop) and mixed by Dan Grech (Radiohead, Wolf Alice), it's a stunning instance of anthemic rock that relentlessly transcends its very genre.
It's safe to say that one can expect big things from this UK-based outfit.
Blaenavon are also hitting the road with Foals, The Districts and Oscar over the next few weeks. Catch 'em if you can.
