“Our musical approach was to aim for timeless songs. We were more open to pulling in our older influences to receive input from the timeless to create the timeless,” says the 33-year-old fine artist. For the members of Plainsunset, – Jonathan Chan (vocals and guitars), Norsham Husaini (guitars and backing vocals), Nizam Sukri (bass) and Ronny Laily (drums) all age 33, this much anticipated fourth release documents Plainsunset’s best and most consistent music to date, and is also their most adventurous, mature, and accessible studio release. The album is not just a return to form, but a reinvention of the Plainsunset sound, a tribute to the music that fuels their heart and soul. PLAINSUNSET is the sound of a band rediscovering and paying tribute to the music that originally inspired them. This album certainly charts the 12-year-old band’s steady progression to maturity and popularity.
From their early days, playing to as little as 30 kids at local community centres, to touring Malaysia, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and New Zealand, Plainsunset have had quite an impressive, if convoluted, history. After breaking up in 2004, they set the record for the greatest attendance in a single set at the Esplanade’s Baybeats Festival (Singapore’s biggest Indie-Alternative rock festival) with their spectacular comeback performance in 2006. Most recently, Plainsunset have made a stride into the world of commercial music, with 5 tracks from their upcoming album featured in Star World’s HEROES Season 2 promotional campaign aired earlier this year. So for those who have yet to be mesmerized by their explosive live performances, or who have yet to take notice of Plainsunset’s inspiring tunes and lyrics with a heart, now is the time; Because as the age old saying goes – “The sun will rise again”. Coming soon to a record store near you! Read more on Last.fm.
