Blaenavon deal in a murky, sludgy indie, dripping in menace and juxtaposed by searing melody and choruses the size of a house. It’s fitting, then, that their gloomy new EP ‘Miss World’ is streaming in full ahead of Halloween (and its Friday release via Transgressive).
The ‘Miss World’ EP is a three-track smash-and-grab from the band, dealing in murky depths and sky-scraping highs in equal measure. It comes ahead of a huge winter run of shows for the band, full dates for which are below. Included in that is a support run on Oscar’s upcoming DIY Presents UK tour.
