Leeds/Wakefield garage punk band Drahla have returned with their new single “Lip Sync” and its accompanying music video.
The track is out, it follows last year’s single “Under The Glass“, and is the second single to land from their as yet mostly unwritten new album. Get it here.
The video for the song was filmed, edited and directed by the band’s own Luciel Brown and Rob Riggs and inspired by the American mixed-media artist Bruce Nauman’s 1969 visual piece of the same name.
From the band: “Lip Sync is an autobiographical account of self deflection. It explores the idea of syncing to social norms, conversation and expressions to converse without being fully present – taking on a converged guise to fit different interactions.”
