Plàsi is releasing a new EP next week and we are so there for it!
When speaking about the new EP, Plàsi said:
“The story is coherent, I’m playing with different types of musical moods, because the EP is basically about me finding my way back to where I belong. During many years, I actually went away from music and tried to distance myself from it. It’s easy to put yourself in different boxes: lawyer, doctor, economist, and so on. Music was always my passion. As I grew up however, different options were presented, so I took time off from it. The EP recalls when I was young and time didn’t matter. I eventually realized music was exactly what I should be doing, and I shouldn’t be afraid to let that passion back into my life.”
Plàsi’s music has gathered over 40 million streams since his debut in 2016 and has been critically acclaimed in international media. He has supported the likes of Henry Jamison, José González and Hollow Coveson on the road, in addition to his first European headline tour and performances at festivals such as Iceland Airwaves and Eurosonic.
In the midst of a brief break from tour, he retreated to the Julian Alps in Slovenia with bandmates and producers Linus and Hannes Hasselberg. Holing up in a remote mountainside cottage, they spent four full days recording what would become Where I Belong. In between, they hiked through the woods, enjoyed hidden lakes, and inhaled the fresh air.
“I wanted this to be part of an experience for everyone involved,” he states. “We took the songs to a place where we all felt very close to earth and to nature. That part of the story is very important to me. It’s hard to reproduce the same feeling in a studio on a normal day. We were in a country my producers had never been to. There was a unique feeling of being in the middle of the mountains that I hadn’t experienced in many other places. We felt a little bit like kids, because we were in a place we wouldn’t normally be, and everything was exciting around the process.
Threaded together by intimately organic soundscapes and entrancing vocal transmissions, he wholeheartedly embraced his purpose on the 2020 EP, ‘Where I Belong’.
‘Where I Belong’ will be released May 29th on Nettwerk!
