Brooklyn-based four piece Plight has spent the last five years making a name for themselves in New York City, cultivating their own brand of alternative over the years. Now with their debut LP ‘Plastic Sun’ on up-and-coming imprint à La Carte Records, the sound of Plight has evolved into a concoction of chunky power-pop anthems, wall-of-sound shoegaze, and morose slowcore ballads.
Their first offering is the single, “No Outlet.” The track hearkens back to the classic 90’s sound honed by acts like Duster and Smashing Pumpkins mixed with the contemporary sensibilities of Title Fight and Nothing. With the single, Plight delivers a music video with footage of them that could have easily been ripped right from 120 Minutes.
The band says, “Plastic Sun is about finding your beach on a trash island drifting somewhere in the ocean.”
“Plastic Sun” is out now on à La Carte Records (Soft Kill, Lesser Care, The True Faith).
The album is also available to purchase on vinyl and cassette here.
