hmv's Next Big Thing... #111 Plaitum

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you sparky electro duo Plaitium...


Who Are They?

Plaitum are Matt Canham and Abi Dersiley, longtime friends who've come to together as electronics wielding duo Plaitum. Signed to super producer Paul Epworth's label Wolf Tone, they are currently reading their debut LP, which is titled Constraint... 


Who Do They Sound Like?

The obvious comparisons are Crystal Castles and Purity Ring with their ability to make an electronic wall of noise that feels like it's closing on you with Dersiley's vocals perched elegantly on top. 


Why Should I Be Excited?

Crunchy beats, vibrant electronics and poppy choruses, what's not to like? 


Can I Hear Something?

For sure, hear their new single 'MYO' below. You can check out all the band's singles here in hmv's digital store.
