PLAZA reclaim ‘Youth’ on exhilriating new single
PLAZA ~ Youth
“brooding lyrics and hazy vocal treatments are nicely balanced out by soaring guitar work and crashing percussion. The end result is a sonic treat you’ll want to hold onto throughout the winter and beyond.” The Music Ninja
“Headstrong and intelligent, PLAZA’s mathematical take on anthemic indie ties itself in ever-tightening knots from the off ” DIY Magazine
“PLAZA are small town dreamers with an edge. Brattish grunge pop with an obnoxious vibe, they’re out to annoy and entertain in equal measures.” Clash
PLAZA release third single ‘Youth’, out on Friday 4th November via Beyond The Wall and available to stream and download on all platforms.
PLAZA are 4 late-teens from the industrial seaside town of Hartlepool, writing anthems that resonate the trials and tribulations of growing up; youthful romance, lukewarm beers and parmos.
With their third Single ‘Youth’ PLAZA return to the foreground with another dose of their defiant brand of self-destructive, socio-political Post-Indie.
Since forming in late 2015, PLAZA have quickly gained a reputation for their intelligent songwriting and chaotic live shows around the UK, which includes supporting the likes of Rat Boy, Jaws & Gengahr, as well as showcase performances for DIY & The Tipping Point. From these marquee shows, to house party and rehearsal room gigs, and slots at some of the UK’s key new music festivals the lads have honed their craft to perfection.
Debut single ‘Totem’ (Feb, 2016) hit home hard with airplay from BBC Radio 1, Radio X and Amazing Radio as well as strong critical acclaim from the Blogosphere, before featuring on Huw Stephen’s Best of BBC Introducing playlist. Their sophomore release ‘Blood Orange’ built on this success and with latest single’Youth’ the lads from Pools are on a mission to turn heads, tap toes, and bring the £1.50-a-pint party back to Hartle.
PLAZA will be releasing ‘Youth’ via Beyond The Wall on Friday 4thNovember.
