Plini will be releasing a new album titled “Impulse Voices” on November 27. The guitarist recorded the effort with Simon Grove on bass and Chris Allison on drums. The following guests also took part: Dave Mackay (piano/synthesizer), John Waugh (saxophone), and Amy Turk (electro-acoustic harp). The first single “I’ll Tell You Someday” can be found below:
Plini said the following about the new song:
“I picked this as the first ‘single’ because I wanted to provide the listener with a big, warm, instrumental hug, in a time when I feel everyone could use one. I think it gives a friendly first impression of the album, in terms of sound and energy, though may also provide a false sense of security for some of the stranger territory the rest of the album ventures into…”
He also added the following about the record:
“The early demos for these songs range from a few months to a few years old, but the majority of the work that went into the album was during the first half of this year. With all travel plans cancelled until further notice, I slowed my lifestyle way down and spent almost every day from March til August wandering around Sydney, listening to podcasts and music, and then coming home and chipping away at these songs.
It was an extremely fun, rewarding and explorative process – the closest I’ve felt to the free-spiritedness I had when I first started writing music (way before ever releasing it), but informed by everything I’ve learnt and experienced in the last few years of tours and travel.
To make an analogy, I feel like I designed a pretty cool house for the listener to inhabit with these songs, but it was made truly special by the masterfully-crafted furnishings and decorations added by Chris, Simon and the rest of the musicians involved.”
