Spending the last two years pouring themselves into new sounds, fleshing out new ideas and bringing a fresh creative vision to life, Brisbane indie four-piece The Plane Sailors debut their new single, Strikeout.
As an introduction for some and a moment of reintroduction for those who have followed the group from the beginning of their journey, Strikeout is a perfect snapshot of The Plane Sailors flying at a creative peak.
In their music a range of influences can be heard, from Ball Park Music to TOWNS; their music evoking the likes of Modern Baseball and Blink-182 as well. The Plane Sailors’ love for pop-rock and particularly the emo era of the ‘00s comes through in their music in 2021, but as a song like Strikeout points out, the band is definitely making music with their minds firmly trained on the future – what’s coming next.
“Strikeout sets the groundwork for what’s to come from us as a band. You hear those guitars in the intro, and you know it’s a Plane Sailors Song.” – The Plane Sailors, Curtis Hooper
Having been together since 2018, The Plane Sailors have undergone a significant amount of changes and finessing of their core musical vision. The process of making new music together also brought with it significant challenges and harder times for the band; which they were able to become stronger as a result of. Re-emerging this year brandishing their new sounds and direction though, The Plane Sailors have more than proven that they’re fired up and ready to go.
“Our new music is definitely a fresh sound and more creative than anything we have made previously. I’m honestly really proud of building something from the ground up and having it result in the best thing we have made to date.” – The Plane Sailors, Joe Floyd
