Plant Plants Ep by This Is Music
Produced by Simian Mobile Disco’s Jas Shaw much of Plants Plants’ (duo Stuart Francis and Howard Whatley) new EP cleverly blends experimental electronica with a pop sensibility...kind of like a 21st century Talk Talk having a gang bang with Foals. If they ever decided to remake Blade Runner the pick of the four tracks on offer here, Hands That Sleep, could well make it onto the soundtrack, thanks to its cinematic synths, enigmatic lyrics and slightly industrial sounding samples. Just when you think you’ve neatly got them pigeonholed though the EP ends with a deliciously sparse alt country sounding piece, aptly compared to the likes of Sparklehorse. It all 'leafs' you wanting to hear more...(sorry, just couldn't resist that...I don't get out much)
The Plants Plants EP is out now on Less Music.
