FOR FANS OF: INHEAVEN, GENGAHR, JAWS
4 late-teens from the industrial seaside town of Hartlepool, PLAZA are writing anthems that resonate the trials and tribulations of growing up; youthful romance, lukewarm beers, parmos and the ‘prospects’ this brings in austerity Britain.
Since forming in late 2015, PLAZA have quickly gained a reputation for their intelligent songwriting and chaotic live shows around the UK, which includes supporting the likes of Rat Boy, Gengahr and High Tyde as well as showcase performances for DIY & The Tipping Point. From these marquee shows, to house party and rehearsal room gigs, and slots at some of the UK’s key new music festivals the lads have honed their craft to perfection.
Debut single ‘Totem’ (Feb, 2016) hit home hard with airplay from BBC Radio 1, Radio X and Amazing Radio as well as strong critical acclaim from the Blogosphere, before featuring on Huw Stephen’s Best of BBC Introducing playlist. Their sophomore release ‘Blood Orange’ built on this success and third single, the anthemic ‘Youth’ brought the lads from Pools to the wider indie consciousness.
