Following the well-received sophomore album, “Bright Black”, in 2022 via fellow independent label Declared Goods, rife with a heady blend of Dark Post-punk grooves with ethereal Jangle Pop, NYC-based Alternative Rock collective London Plane return in the new year with a refreshed line-up, ready to revive the contagious energy of their live shows that London Plane has become renowned for, especially among their home crowd.
The band, made up of David Mosey (guitar and vocals), Jessica Cole (vocals), Bryan Garbe (drums), Grant Parker (bass), Julian Tulip (synths) and Kristofer Widholm (guitar), presents a new video, shot on location in Instanbul by Kashif Khan, for one of “Bright Black”’s most energized songs, “When We Were Right”, WL//WH is very pleased to premiere.
A raucous blast of Rock’n’Roll that rattles and rings along, cloaked in a sweeping loud, boisterous drama, fed off by an electrifying concoction of restless high-energy drum beats, throbbing punchy bass lines, strident shredding and skewed guitar riffs laced with eerie and edgy sparkling melodies, and sinister jagged splinters, to encompass powerfully angsty, haunted vocals and claustrophobic group choral immersions, with relentless, obsessive, and desperate memories from the secret shadows of “When We Were Right.”
The Official Video, filmed in Istanbul by Kashif Khan merges the intoxicating hustling grit of a nocturnal urban landscape with notable arabesque décor and an intriguing performance, to sync seamlessly with the chaos of the soundtrack. Off-kilter camera angles, negative light photography, and strobing flows of fragmented black-and-white motion encapsulate a Turkish-clad street performer with nightmarish visions, of surreal exaggerated perception.
