PLOTZ RELEASE PICK YOU UP WHEN YOUR’E DOWN, WITH NEW SYNTH POP SINGLE NOT ALONE
After releasing the summer vibes indie tune, Baby Shakes, to rave reviews, Plotz are back with the second single from their upcoming EP.
Driven by dark 80s synths and sparse drums, You Are Not Alone dives into some 80s alt band territory. Reminiscent of Depeche Mode and Joy Division, the song captivates from the opening lines. However, the song quickly opens up in the chorus and launches into an incredible singalong worthy of any 80s teen romance film. In fact, one wouldn’t be surprised if this appeared on the Stranger Things soundtrack.
Stylistically the single is a bit of a left turn for fans used to the jangle guitars and indie summer vibes that Plotz have become known for. But this advance in sound, production and songwriting just shows where this band is capable of going. Complex but catchy is an easy pill to swallow. It’s the summer anthem you didn’t know you needed. It meets you at your lowest point and lifts you up emotionally to see you through it.
“The concept of the song is almost like arguing with someone who is so down they can’t see all the people around them/helping them. It’s okay to feel disconnected from the universe, but that hiding in won’t solve your issues. So, I guess the message in the song is a positive reminder to anyone who feels isolation of any kind that regardless of how unique they think their disconnect is, there are others going through the same experience” – Yon
With all this talk about connecting and disconnecting from the universe it’s no wonder why the new upcoming EP is called From The Universe To You. If these two singles are anything to go by it’s bound to be on your car stereo all Summer.
Not Alone is out on all streaming services Friday 20th Septmeber.
