Reliably informed

Sometimes, making music isn’t the plain sailing you hoped it would be. A misstep or two pushed Sunderland-based duo Yes Plant back a smidge during the creation of their follow up to 2019’s concept EP Getting Away With It. But, despite some troubles, the experimental scythe-comedy project was able to pull themselves together to complete their debut album, Coming Back To It. Top marks for appropriately naming this record.

Yes Plant specialise in approaching the most uncomfortable societal taboos with a fresh, comedic take. They’ve already dealt with love and murder, now it’s time to deal with such niceties as fixation, paranoia and potentially lethal carelessness. Coming Back To It doesn’t serve as a musical experience in the way you expect. Music is there, sure; there’s some chill, lo-fi pop beats that might be best suited to an interdimensional elevator, but Yes Plant extend their work into the realm of experimental art to make their point. Singing steps aside for spoken word at peculiar intervals, and sometimes a track will descend into pure anarchy to further the complex narrative. This is not easy listening, but boy is it fun.

Yes Plant release Coming Back To It on 2nd October
