Music can mean so many things to so many people – but no-one relates to music in quite the same way as Sunderland experimental project Yes Plant.

Across the myriad of Yes Plant releases, music has been a medium of fun, exploration and primarily a storytelling device. Those stories might be as innocuous as telling someone to shut up, or even a little smidge of the autobiographical, but the vast majority are slightly unsettling narratives exploring anything from childhood abandonment to murder.

With various restrictions scattered across 2020, new material got clogged in the pipeline. Instead, the follow up from 2019’s Getting Away With It and 2020’s Coming Back To It, is Yes Plant’s latest journey: Re-Imagined. As the title would suggest, this album is more of a retrospective across their dizzying career. Here, we revisit the tale of one man’s unfortunate circumstance following the light murder of his beloved, and his new life on the run. Re-imagined is this story in its most complete form: this experimental electro pop perfectly encapsulated the unnerving descent of a fugitive. Needing to be heard to be believed, Yes Plant creates a deliberate haphazard sound of voice samples and synthetic beats that’d be impossible to replicate.

Yes Plant release Re-Imagined on 23rd April
