Gary Thackrah & Justin Penkethman are Melbourne-based songwriters that share a passion for both acoustic and electronic textures. They have played many hundreds of gigs in many different bands and projects, but not many or enough together. “We’re both inspired by the same music, we just had to see what we could create together” says Gaz.

The Follower is the first single from their debut album, which will be ready for release in Feb 2016. In the studio, they worked closely with producer/recording engineer Cam McKenzie (Mark Seymour) and collaborated with drummer Sean Jova Albers (The Grand Silent System, Seth Sentry).

“The Follower is a laid back track that we really enjoyed recording and layering with synths and strings. We wanted it to sound reflective and have a real depth to it, and we’re real happy with how it turned out.”

With their single release, The Plaidians showcase how neatly they can weave acoustic and electronic sounds together in unpredictable and melodic ways: blending genres of pop, rock and electronica. Influenced by bands such as City & Colour and Radiohead, they present a sound that is as understated as The XX and the depth of Beck.

About this track...

The song reflects on the feeling of isolation, of desire being just out of reach. Beginning with acoustic guitar and melancholy vocals, the song lifts with the string section and sets up a journey that finally builds to a full arrangement, all the while with a strong and compelling melody.
