Hartlepool indie quartet PLAZA return with a blistering new single ‘Bolostitcher’, a track that sounds disconsolate in sentiment.
The single is the band’s second of the year and is a offers a catharsis release of emotive layers which are linked up to the spacious grunge-meets-dream-pop style the four-piece (Brad Lennard (Guitar/Vocals), Matty Swinbourne (Drums), Matty Nicholson (Guitar) and Will Hamilton (Bass)) have carefully cultivated over the last few years.
Icy guitars and a sprinkling of electronics, driven forward by a skittish beat, provide the layer for Lennard’s confessionary vocals, before an iconic, fierce riff closes the show. Vocalist Brad Lennard opens up about the single.
He said: “The past year has been a struggle for me, I’ve had some of the best times and the worst times, these songs where written throughout this.
“They are probably the most true songs we’ve written as a group. Lyrically they’re straight to the point. In the past I’ve always been wore subliminal with my words, this EP is different. It’s about loss, feeling like everything in your life isn’t going to work out and feeling like you have no one to turn to.”
With the upcoming EP ‘Wernotplaza II’ dropping very soon, PLAZA refuses to compromise in expressing their truth. Give ‘Bolostitcher’ a listen and leave your rating out of 10.
