Just Listen: Plaza – Origami


Words: Gary Feeney

plazaAlthough PLAZA have been around for a while now and have a number of singles and support slots under their belt, their new single Origami is my first encounter with them.

Opening with expansive, reverb-laden guitars and loose, shuffling drums, the eel is similar to A Storm In Heaven-period Verve, before Bradley Lennard’s vocals come in, his resonant voice adding even more depth to the sound. As the song progresses, it grows in stature, particularly in the soaring choruses which see Lennard wishing to be “taken away from it all” – if that suggests a gloominess, then there is also something uplifting in the way the lines are delivered.

At just over three minutes long, Origami’s running time seem deceptively short, which is testament to the depth and quality of an ambitious, intelligently crafted song – if this is your introduction to PLAZA, it’s going to have you going back for more and more.
