self-titled debut album 'plug' is released through upset the rhythm. comprising sian dorrer (vocals and drums) and georgie nettell (bass, keys and vocals) plug construct minimal pop
vignettes, with bright, sumptuous basslines locking indelibly with crisp, taught drumming - a deceptively simple yet driving combination owing as much to hip-hop and dance music as the sparse clatter of post-punk. songs are handled deftly with sian's strident, powerful vocals augmented by georgie's more subdued whisper. plug play a sophisticated kind of
post-something pop with a brisk intensity, a wry sense of humour and canny knack for a memorable hook. 'plug' is a record written with the intention to perfect each song so it encapsulates a chosen style in their own eyes. this is a pop record with a modernist narrative glimpsed through an open window into all our lives. moments of great intimacy and detachment rub shoulders, diary-like, drawing you in. sometimes you feel unnerved sometimes beholden as honesty seeps out of this record. these contrasts mirror our capricious lives, in all their erratic and compelling extremes. as the album finishes with the sound of a window closing on the world we're left assured that plug set out to make this day count.
