“The song “Echo” from Plan Three is the latest single leading right up to their new and highly anticipated album “Wish I Was Stormborne” that is due to be released on September 29th. One of the strongest tracks among the eleven solid songs on the album, it is a straightforward, beautiful modern rock anthem that is trying to analyze the biggest mystery of them all. A complicated mathematically metaphoric equation that should be as easy as one plus one equals two, but never is… Love.”
Acclaimed Melbourne based artist Woodes has released a new take on her huge hit ‘Run For It’ aptly named ‘Run For It(Night Version)’. The Night Version takes the powerful track and pulls it back, adding dark sonic elements and live instruments to highlight the incredible vocals by Woodes.
“This year I had my piano moved down from Queensland to join me in my studio in Melbourne. It’s helped shift my process into a hybrid between my piano and my laptop. Over a couple of nights in my studio I started to piece together this version of Run For It. It was just me, my piano and my laptop. I love recording at night, no distractions. Getting lost in something until you need sleep. I got my friend Cayn Borthwick in on saxophone and then Simon Lam(Kllo) mixed and mastered the track,” said Woodes.

John says ”This track came from a period when I was placing unrealistic expectations on myself and my music – comparing myself to other artists and always coming up short. I went out to a beautiful spot near my home town on a walk. I came out of my head long enough to notice how beautiful my natural surroundings were. They reflected my own beautiful natural self which I’d forgotten in a cloud of mental chatter. The line ‘Lord I keep on looking out my window, and missing whats this side of my front door’ came up from inside and that was the seedling for the track. It’s about taking stock of what’s HERE”
