Loving... Plum's new single featuring a fab collab by TeKlo
I love Plum's music ... and I was delighted to receive an email telling me about her latest single.
Receiving emails like that always make me smile ... but I was smiling like a loon when I realised that her single was 'smile' ... one of my fave tracks off her album 'the seed' ... which is, by the way, in my top 10 albums of 2012.
'Smile' is such a beautiful track. The backing is so strong ... chunky beats and supersonic synths ... with the addition of Plum's vocals ... it is simply wonderful. It also holds fab memories of seeing her perform it live. It was a real hit with the crowd that night.
The b-side ... 'Rainbow' ... is a collaborative effort between Plum and producer TeKlo ... the result of late nights in a secret countryside hide out.
It's a wonderful dense track ... with a dubstep flavour ... underpinned a noisy Aphex Twin vibe and some seriously bleepy sounds. I love it ... and really welcome it. I will need to look out for TeKlo ... he has talent.
I've embedded the tracks below for your listening pleasure. I hope you enjoy them as much I as do. If you like what you hear, please support Plum.
