(SXSW 2016 flavoured!) Live Gig Video: Blaenavon perform ‘Dragon’ at Manchester Albert Hall for Burberry Acoustic

Blaenavon are a trio that hail from Liphook, East Hampshire. To be perfectly frank, I don’t know a whole lot about them. I *do* know that the indie group are one of 14 acts to have received PRS funding for their maiden voyage out to Austin next month for SXSW 2016, which is a great vote of confidence in both their musical talent and potential. The masses have also spoken: a gig this coming Thursday, the 4th of February, at London Lexington is already sold out.

On the aesthetic side of things, Blaenavon have received attention from posh fashion house Burberry: their lead singer Ben Gregory has been chosen as the face for Burberry’s spring/summer 2016 campaign. With that, the band were recently filmed by the company performing at a Christmas show at Manchester Albert Hall last month. In the below video, they’re seen performing ‘Dragon’ from their recent ‘Miss World’ EP. Have and watch and listen and let us know what you think of this up-and-coming English group.
