Vocalist / guitarist Chris Reardon comments on the single: “The genesis of the song was written roughly back in February last year.
The words and melody for the opening verses came to me one morning in bed one after feeling pretty frustrated by the situation back in the UK and the joke that is the Conservative party.
It was around the time that the Sue Gray report came out, which of course all the public knew was a joke anyway, we all saw the photos in the news and of course…..nothing really happened after that report and Boris and his cronies carried on talking their waffle of nonsense. I had already, as many of us, been feeling at a loss with the government.
“The writing then made me dig in deeper (our education system, media lying and manipulation for example). I wanted to also talk about how I feel that our political system doesn’t truly represent our values, beliefs and what is best for our country, community and the world at large.
It seems like whether its the Labour or Tory it doesn’t matter, I vote Green and that also in many respects in our how system works doesn’t make much of a difference.
I really saw with the Tories under Boris that all he really cared about was what was written about him, not policy, the public or the country. And with Brexit also in my mind, it seemed that the news was just as much to blame for the confusion and lies. As it all turns out through the lies of both major news outlets and the government we’re in a right pickle at the moment (now with the IMF prediction only furthering worry in our country).
Founded in 2021 PLAIINS is an in-your-face rock band that pull influences from punk, alternative rock, indie and metal that have quickly grown to prominence on the underground circuit with their infectious hooks, hard hitting lyrics and huge sound.
Chris Reardon from the UK / Hong Kong (vocals / guitars), Tal Pinhas from Israel (bass / guitars) and David “Dizzy” Suhlrie from Germany (drums) have a chemistry that concocts songs with power, aggression, big riffs and infectious hooks, that captivate audiences with their uniqueness. Lyrically the band confronts issues in politics, inequality, heartbreak, and mental health, inspired by their diverse range of cultural perspectives.
Since the release of their first single ‘The Wolf’ in April 2022, PLAIINS have been consistently added to some of the world’s biggest playlists on Spotify including All New Rock, All New Punk, Fresh Finds Rock and Alternarock. PLAIINS were quickly added to BBC Introducing’s new favourites with frequent airplay and their single ‘C-A-P-I-T-A-L’ released in December 2022, gained ‘Track Of The Week’. The band’s previous single continue their momentum with radio play across UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Canada.
2022 saw the band hit the live circuit, with a highlight supporting Press Club, playing in Berlin to a sold out crowd. 2023 promises to be a big year for PLAIINS with more new music and touring on the horizon. More news soon.
