Kent quintet Hildamay, as with most great bands, let struggle shape them, channeling their experiences into creativity, crafting a path to better days through what they do best. Emerging from the end of a turbulent year with brand new single, “Drag”, a track which marks the band’s finest musical hour to date – snag the free download above. “When we were writing these new songs we were all experiencing some tough times,” recalls vocalist Tim Lawrence; “We chose to release ‘Drag’ first as it was the song that summed up best where we were all at mentally. It definitely shows a different side to us, and showcases an overview of what to expect from us next.”

Downbeat and soaked through with thick guitars and churning, melancholic vocal refrains, “Drag” sees Hildamay – completed by bassist Ollie James Jeffs, guitarists Chris Carvell and Sean Keane and drummer Tom Spencer – on top of their game, expanding on the rougher edges showcased on 2012’s debut full-length Miles Away. “These new songs are more about transition than regret,” Tim explains; “It’s all about us making changes and moving forward.”
