Fiery multinational rock trio PLAIINS have unveiled new single ‘Wooha! (speak easyyy)’. Fusing post-punk with a touch of metallic heaviness, the new single pokes fun at rockstar machoism and hedonism.

Vocalist / guitarist Chris Reardon comments: “The idea for ‘Wooha!’ was brought in by our bass player Tal with that awesome riff. It had this IDLESSleaford Mods, post-punk, protopunk kind of vibe and immediately once I started throwing ideas on it the words “speak easy” in that exaggerated way came out.  Lyrically the song is about rock star machismo, arrogance, and their hedonistic view on things. Around the time I wrote the lyrics for this song I had met quite a few musicians and people in the scene which kind of sickened me. To me their behaviour was so embarrassing and playing to all those rock star cliches. This kind of “lad mentality”. I thought that kind of thing had died out a bit….sadly it hasn’t. I feel like we all have the capability to turn into those people. So many external inputs like wealth or materialistic things for example can inflate our image of ourselves. And I wanted a line to also be a warning to myself to never let myself go that way.”

On the video he continues: “I directed this one with Tim Erdmann who has shot all of the PLAIINS stuff to date. I wanted something that was a mixture between Talking HeadsPeter Gabriel and the UK punk band Slaves incorporating still life objects, like from Renaissance era painting and spinning it on its head with Surrealist and Modern art quirkiness. All items put together have metaphorical meaning connected to the song ‘Wooha!’ Whether broad or specific. “

Founded in 2021 PLAIINS is an in-your-face rock band that pull influences from punk, alternative rock, indie and metal that have quickly grown to prominence on the underground circuit with their infectious hooks, hard hitting lyrics and huge sound.

Chris Reardon from the UK / Hong Kong (vocals / guitars), Tal Pinhas from Israel (bass / guitars) and David “Dizzy” Suhlrie from Germany (drums) have a chemistry that concocts songs with power, aggression, big riffs and infectious hooks, that captivate audiences with their uniqueness. Lyrically the band confronts issues in politics, inequality, heartbreak, and mental health, inspired by their diverse range of cultural perspectives. 

Since the release of their first single ‘The Wolf’ in April 2022, PLAIINS have been consistently added to some of the world’s biggest playlists on Spotify including All New Rock, All New Punk, Fresh Finds Rock and Alternarock. PLAIINS were quickly added to BBC Introducing‘s new favourites with frequent airplay and their single ‘C-A-P-I-T-A-L’ released in December 2022, gained ‘Track Of The Week’. The band’s previous single continue their momentum with radio play across UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Canada. 

2022 saw the band hit the live circuit, with a highlight supporting Press Club, playing in Berlin to a sold out crowd. 2023 promises to be a big year for PLAIINS with more new music and touring on the horizon. More news soon.
