"Origami" is the epic new single from Hartlepool teens PLAZA.
Sounding like Foals meets Mutemath, "Origami" has a haunting quality, drifting into the grey area between black and white. The twitchy rhythms and buried vocals create a sense of paranoia, with the thumping drum beat ringing out like a warning.
Of the track, vocalist Brad Lennard had this to say:
“Origami is a song that we wrote whilst recording our first demos with our good friend Christopher Milnes. We recorded it in his flat in Leeds, all around his place where small pieces of origami he’d made. I remember thinking to myself how peaceful doing origami must be, kind of an emotional detachment from everything, which, lyrically has a large impact on the song. It was pieced together with the whole vibe we were going through at that moment."
These guys are certainly high on my list of acts to watch in 2017, and I can't wait until they drop their debut release later this year.
