Sydney local, Pluto Jonze, has had the world at his feet of late, touring alongside Jinja Safari, The Jezabels and the mighty Buck 65. Having just released his new single, Plastic Bag in Hurricane, Pluto Jonze has taken to the streets, touring his unique pop sensibilities to the east coast.
The magic of this man’s music is it’s inability to fit under one genre. Imagine if Beck and Damon Albarn took to making music together, with a splash of Bowie then we’d get pretty close. Sample driven sequences, bursting with electronic synth melodies drench this pop mega-piece.
His sound has evolved over the few years since his win at Tropfest music award, Tropscore back in 2009 but still retains some of the homebaked goodness. Having recorded much of his samples in his bedroom prior to handing over the songs to Tony Espie (Avalanches, Cut Copy & The Holidays) to mix.
I’m hoping to catch up with the man behind the music ahead of his Sydney at the Oxford Arts Factory next Friday show next week (27th Oct) and will have the full run down this coming Saturday on the Walk of Shame. Tune in from 9am for more!
