PLANET - INFORMATION OVERLOAD VINYL (LTD. ED. ORANGE GATEFOLD)
LIMITED EDITION ORANGE VINYL GATEFOLD
Release Date: 11th March 2022
"Aussie indie-rock quartet PLANET open 2022 in a serious way as they release the title track from their forthcoming debut album Information Overload. Layering blazing electrics over a heavy percussive bassline, frontman Matty Took’s smooth vocals tie ‘Information Overload’ together into an addictive indie-pop groove. Mirroring the nostalgic indie sounds, the visual accompaniment centres on vintage TV sets that display the band’s performance between news clips from the past. Speaking on the track and its meaning, Took said “We wanted the video for ‘Information Overload’ to be as intense and sporadic as humanly possible so the idea was to make three separate clips and add in affected news clipping and ads. The final product was filming these clips projected on old TV/broadcast monitors - quite obviously portraying the title of the song, but subtly highlighting how when there is so much going on you can't think at all or do anything with clarity.” The complete album Information Overload is set to drop on 11th March, with a 13-date UK and Ireland tour following later in the spring. Comprised of Took, guitarist Tommy Peppitt, drummer Harry Stewart-Weeks and bassist Jimmy Weaver, PLANET’s signature alt-pop sound has captured international acclaim from the likes of ROLLING STONE, NME, CLASH and WONDERLAND alongside over three million Spotify streams to date. Continuing to enthral fans and tastemakers with each teaser release from the upcoming album, PLANET are setting a tone of immensity for the year ahead. Watch this space."
