Just Listen: Plaza – Deep In My Head


Words: Gary Feeney

When I wrote about Plaza’s single Origami for Popped, I noted the impressive complexity and musical depth on show, and that it was a single which was certain to have you going back for more from the band.

Fast forward a month or so, then, and both of those observations ring just as true about the band’s new release, Deep In My Head. Darker and heavier than its predecessor but no less, grandiose, we find singer Bradley Lennard in reflective mode, his sonorous incantations complementing the intensity of the music in a manner that’s fast becoming Plaza’s trademark. As with Origami, there’s moments of gloom and moments of hope shining through, with the sampled female voice which plays quietly in the background at times adding an ever-so-slightly unsettling edge.
It’s not often that you’d describe a track at just over 3 minutes as a musical epic, but Plaza seem to be making a habit of producing songs that demand that very label.

Deep In My Head features on the band’s debut EP Wernotplaza.
