2015 has seen Hampshire based wunderkinds BLAENAVON finish school, sign to Transgressive Records, record a new EP and confirm some very exciting plans for the recording of their eagerly awaited debut album. Having played shows with the likes of Warpaint, Districts, The Orwells & Songhoy Blues – the boys seem to be making all the right sorts of friends at an impressively young age. Made up of Ben Gregory (Vox / Guitar) Harris McMillan (Perc) & Frank Wright (Bass) they released their debut single ‘Into The Night’ and subsequent EP ‘KOSO’ to great critical acclaim while they finished their studies. Now the wise beyond their years 3-piece are back with huge ambition and some mind blowing new music – it appears as if the Liphook based lads are finally ready to show the world what they’ve got in store.
