Plini has released a new single, alongside an accompanying music video. It’s called Papelillo, and you can watch its music video above.
Papelillo comes from Plini’s long-awaited second album, Impulse Voices, which was composed and recorded in his bedroom studio. Accompanying the guitarist across the album’s eight tracks are drummer Chris Allison and bassist Simon Grove, who also mixed and co-produced Impulse Voices. It will be released on 27 November.
Speaking about how the album came together, Plini said: “The early demos for these songs range from a few months to a few years old, but the majority of the work that went into the album was during the first half of this year. With all travel plans cancelled until further notice, I slowed my lifestyle way down and spent almost every day from March til August wandering around Sydney, listening to podcasts and music, and then coming home and chipping away at these songs.
“It was an extremely fun, rewarding and explorative process – the closest I’ve felt to the free-spiritedness I had when I first started writing music (way before ever releasing it), but informed by everything I’ve learnt and experienced in the last few years of tours and travel. To make an analogy, I feel like I designed a pretty cool house for the listener to inhabit with these songs, but it was made truly special by the masterfully-crafted furnishings and decorations added by Chris, Simon and the rest of the musicians involved.”
Papelillo’s video is filmed in typical lockdown style, and it’s important to note – If you’re arachnophobic or made uncomfortable by insects in any way, it’s probably best to just listen to the song and leave the video in another tab.
