PLAZA return with visceral single ‘In The Know’ and sign to Clue Records
…is the message behind PLAZA’s new single In The Know, the latest in a series of fierce, glacial post-indie snarlers from Hartlepool’s favourite sons. Forming and cutting their teeth in the small seaside industrial town it was easy for the quartet to feel isolated from the rest of the UK scene. However taking this relative seclusion and using it to generate a positive energy has seen PLAZA forcefully stretch their own boundaries, resulting in 2 years of consistent acclaim in the national indie sphere.

Massive Attack Guitarist teams up with 13 Year Old Singer to Tackle Bullying Head On!
Following their critically acclaimed 2017 EP, Ocean Blues, Saint Mars are releasing their latest single, Somewhere Somebody on 28th April, part of their forthcoming concept album centred on the true story of one 13 year-old boy’s tragic experience as a result of sustained bullying. The singer of the track, Tryzdin Grubbs, was hand-chosen by Saint Mars leader, Marc Darcange, to give authenticity to the tracks on the album sung by the protagonist, little realising that Tryzdin himself has suffered significantly as a result of bullying. With a band also featuring long-term Massive Attack guitarist, Angelo Bruschini, Somewhere Somebody is a powerful, intoxicating experience, with a video to be released on the same day as the single which emphasises the impact bullying can have on peoples’ lives.
With vocal similarities to Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan, Clifford deliberately employs rough production techniques to add a punk flavor to new wave-inspired songwriting. Think if New Order had attended the sessions for Raw Power and decided to make a similar sounding record, or if The Smiths abandoned guitars and got into Kraftwerk. Propulsive drum machines clash with abrasive guitar lines, while Clifford’s evocative baritone keeps everything balanced with lyrics that touch on isolation, youth, and finding hope in obscure places. The three tracks on the EP are purposely unpolished and compact, designed to impact the listener on a visceral level. The focus isn’t so much on form and harmony as it is on translating fragments of the subconscious. At once acerbic and vulnerable, the EP makes for an engaging listen.
