Plight Takes Flight with New Album and Tour

Brooklyn-based Indie rockers, Plight, have begun a string of tour dates along the east coast in support of their debut album, Plastic Sun.

The band’s description of the album fleshes out a sense of isolation that is both vague and dense: “Plastic Sun is about finding your beach on a trash island drifting somewhere in the ocean.” The music follows suit with heavily distorted riffs, floating melodies, and terraced dynamics as evidenced in the leading single “No Outlet”. Following in the footsteps of grungy forebearers, Plight plunges into the depths of the ocean with both ferocity and tenderness.

“No Outlet” has also been accompanied by a music video featuring a video of the band playing the song on a vintage television placed in urban locations like subways, skate parks, busy crosswalks, jetties overlooking a bay, and many more. Like the album’s description, there is a sense of isolation with the band not being physically present in the recording. And the vintage model of television used harkens back to their 90’s roots.

“No Outlet” and Plastic Sun are available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. The accompanying music video is also available on YouTube.

aSanTIS: ‘You Are a Part of the Highest Form of Creation’

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
