Plum is an All-American Rock n’ Roll band, like an old kaleidoscope pointed at the present, Plum is a psychedelic rock outfit that brings the aesthetic of 60’s and early 70’s music into a modern context. Velvety vocals, hallucinatory harmonies, and prismatic guitars provide soundtracks for daydreams. Formed in late 2014, Plum’s members came together with the ambition of filling the void of vocal harmony and vintage guitar driven music in the modern music scene.
Light Years, Dark Years the debut EP from Denver’s Plum, a band that seamlessly fuse the psychedelic 60s aesthetic of Cream with more modern sounds reminiscent of bands like The Strokes. A record that is endlessly interesting and filled with all sorts of unique musical twists and turns, Plum are pushing the envelope on rock and roll.
The high powered, heavy hitting vibes of this band seem to come almost naturally – and they should. Having formed in late 2014 the band has already had a chance to open for giants like Charles Bradley, Win Butler and The Districts. The point being – Plum are on to something special and any true fan of Chuck Berry’s music should be enamored within seconds. With some Dark and Smokey elements to an audio spectrum as vast as the galaxy itself, they weave a surrealistic tapestry of sound. Light Years, Dark Years is your personal time portal to the early sounds that shaped and inspired a generation of free thinking and ideology, free your mind now.
