For your eyes
17 July 2022
Band: LONDON PLANE
Who: Six-piece post-punk/art-rock juggernaut
from New York City with several vocalists
FFO: Bauhaus, Bowie, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, XTC, Shriekback, Gary Numan, Wire, Soft Kill, Interpol, Preoccupations, Protomartyr, The Primitives, The KVB, Iggy Pop, The Cramps
About the track: “A hook-filled avant-rock adventure, full of context and contradictions, it’s snarling while disco, ruminative while dancey, cerebral while demented, fogs of sweetness becoming venom, melancholy becoming hope, with bass-bruising grooves over lush textures.”
TUTV: Spiritualized‘s Jason Pierce told the world on his classic debut album “Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space” and so do London Plane 25 years later with a instanly sticky guitar pop daisy. Imagine former British dreamers The Sundays with golden voice Harriet Wheeler. Both utopian and touching.
Space could be an escape route towards a new place to start all
over again. But I guess humankind would fuck it up, once more.
Ladies and gentlemen London Plane float in space…
