Alternative electronic-pop trio PLYA have today shared the striking video for their new single ‘Dynamite’ exclusively first on Gigslutz. The track is is the first to be taken from their upcoming four-track EP ‘Still in Love’.
Filmed in a derelict church building in London, the video is dramatic and powerful, featuring a cinematic performance from the band, surrounded by electric colours that ignite the darkness and accentuate the pulsing intensity and dreamy aura of the track.
Addressing themes of addiction, lust and loving something toxic, Julia’s crystalline vocals come with a bite, emerged in an atmospheric wave of synths, rhythmic drums courtesy of drummer Will and Kristian’s melodic guitar and bass lines.
“We wanted to capture the dark element in ‘Dynamite’ in a raw, honest, energetic performance”, explains Julia. ”We filmed it in a beautifully flawed and imperfect church in South London which we felt really captivated the emotion of the song.”
It comes after the release of the sensual hit ‘Adrenaline’, which was picked up by Italian label Manifesto and has had over 1.4million streams on Spotify since December.
They sold out their debut headline show at London’s Camden Assembly in 2018 and went on to support the likes of Grammy nominated artist K.Flay, R.LUM.R, The Aces and The Night Game in the UK and Europe. They also joined the bill of upcoming talent at The Great Escape Festival 2018 and appeared at the sold-out three-day festival O Son do Camino in Spain.
Last month they again played a triumphant headline show at London’s Thousand Island and will have more to follow through the rest of the year.
