Produced by MJ of the formidable Hookworms, Third Article is an overwhelming exhibition of the unstoppable flair and capacity of Drahla, all with incredible precision.
‘Form Of Luxury’ kicks off the record with the alluring togetherness of the trio’s instrumentation, before administering an abrupt disjointedness in Luciel Brown’s seductive vocals and their jerky strings.
Looking for how to encapsulate the feel of ‘Silk Spirit’, we notice that it’s all in the title; the track is blissfully smooth and haunting (in the good way, no spooks).
‘Circuit’ is the shortest track of the EP, running at around a minute and a half. Yet such shredding, crawling guitars and abrupt pace alterations amplifies the track's intensity. Closer ‘New Living Creation’ is pure vigour in its sharpness and stark, unapologetic vocals.
Third Article is the concise, spirited punk that we absolutely adore. Our fingers and toes are crossed that what with the immense promise in their sound, as well as the dedication indicated through putting the EP out on their own label, it won’t be long until Drahla come back with more. They make us greedy like that.
