Plini Announces 'Sunhead' EP, Shares Salt + Charcoal Video

Thursday, 12 July 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Plini is set to release a new EP this summer.

'Sunhead' will arrive on July 27, ahead of the Sydney prog guitarist's second European tour this summer and a European tour this autumn with TesseracT and Between The Buried and Me. Speaking about the EP, Plini said:

"I started working on the material almost straight after 'Handmade Cities' was released in 2016, sort of with the goal to make a very big, small EP - aiming to put as much detail and refinement into the composition and playing as possible. Both musically and emotionally, the music is greatly influenced by the amount of touring and travel I've done in the past couple of years. I was particularly inspired by Animals As Leaders (who I toured Europe and North America with in 2016), by the musical adventurousness in their last album, and Disperse (who I toured with in Europe in early 2017) for the way they seamlessly combined contemporary pop and electronic elements with prog-metal - updating a genre that sometimes seems (ironically for the name, "progressive") entrenched in old musical cliches. Aside from this, I think the 'Sunhead' EP is a musical expression of the pure excitement that comes with traveling to new places, meeting new people and eating new things."

Filmed on Plini's recent US tour, view the video to the single Salt + Charcoal, below.
