PLAZA return with ‘BOLOSTITCHER’ ahead of new EP ‘Wernotplaza II’

Hartlepool post-indie quartet PLAZA refuses to compromise in expressing their truth. With an upcoming sophomore EP, ‘Wernotplaza II’ EP dropping via Clue Records (Crushed Beaks, Van Houten, Avalanche Party, TRASH), preceded by lead single ‘BOLOSTITCHER’, vocalist Brad Lennard opens up:

“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.”

Whilst this sounds disconsolate in sentiment, in listening to the tracks you can hear the release and catharsis it offers, generating an emotive layer to the spacious grunge-meets-dream-pop style the four-piece 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.  Listen to Bolostitcher below:

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
