Come Out Of The Dark
From Bright Black LP
Fronted by the talented David Mosey and Jessica Cole, six-piece post-punk London Plane have their new album out and it's superb. The video release from the record is Come Out Of The Dark. All the way from New York City, with Brian Garbe on drums, Grant Parker on bass, Julian Tulip with the keyboards, and Kristofer Widholm on the guitar, London Plane are flooding the scene with their crystal-clear fast-flowing capacity. The music is written to completely reject the me first mentality that seems to pervade even the best intentions some people have. Making self-centred decision making a cultural offence one step at a time, this new album and video take a triple jump forward.
A sunny strumming guitar lifts off like fireworks on a cool evening as breezy rhythm shudders and cuddles in the brisk. A crisp vocal soars across the sky in a contoured and gated layer. Dabbles of spacey synthesiser form unique harmonies that swirl and spiral around formations of hook that fling across the horizon. A pulse in the lyrics elevates as the verse moves to chorus, breaking down into streaks of colourful shine that shimmer and glitter as they loop and ascend in evolving twists. The band continue to add their glamorous ensemble to the song, bringing out the feelings as the moon sheds a cloak of cloud.

Watch That Madman Go
Soon to be released, Bright Black LP from New York City's London Plane is expected this coming June. To spark our interest and keep the fans happy, the title track was released as a single this week. A series of originals sit back to back and a couple of these have been given the video treatment. Formed backstage during a Lou Reed tribute show, the two vocalists of this six-piece alt-rock outfit first met in 2014. Since this time the band have enjoyed a continuous run of successes and growth spurts that only help to fortify their fresh and listenable sound.
Energy and tempo begin the music with an instant drum groove. Guitars and bass join with funky rock licks that jingle along the sentiment. Keyboard and extra guitar launch the vocal section, a male and female duet delivery brings a layered and multiple personality to the expression. Watch That Madman Go feels like a tongue in cheek volley through sheer disbelief and morbid fascination as we witness the actions of an overly stroked ego. A raucous and punky energy swirls through the track as repeating riffs and chorus lines jostle for power.
