Drahla are a Leeds-based three-piece who have signed to Captured Tracks for the release of their debut album Useless Coordinates on May 3rd. Along with the announcement they have shared the lead track and video 'Stimulus For Living'.

The single is unavoidably sharp, both musically and lyrically, as Drahla present a wiry post-punk that layers moody guitar tones over a propulsive and heartrate-increasing rhythm. In this sparse but magnetic atmosphere singer Luciel Brown lists a series of unsettling and gritty imagery, capturing the chaos of modern life and the discontent that it all brings. The track sounds lightweight, but burns with passion and determination, bursting into flames in its final moments as a unheralded sax solo rips through the finale.

'Stimulus For Living' also comes with a video, which the band describes by saying it is “a visual composition that reflects the lyric content of the track. Based upon abstracted ideas and thought, challenging standardised format and perception.” Check it out below.
