Brooklyn-based four piece Plight has spent the last five years making a name for themselves in New York City. Releasing their Catharsis demo in 2017, the group has been cultivating their own brand of alternative over the years. Now with their debut LP on up-and-coming imprint à La Carte Records, the sound of Plight has evolved into a concoction of chunky power-pop anthems, wall-of-sound shoegaze, and morose slowcore ballads.
Their first offering is the single, “No Outlet.” The track hearkens back to the classic 90’s sound honed by acts like Archers of Loaf and Dinosaur Jr. With the single, Plight delivers a music video with footage of them that could have easily been ripped right from 120 Minutes. Their follow-up single, “Bedhead,” takes a takes a somber turn in the direction of slowcore.
“Plastic Sun” will be released on January 5th, 2023 on à La Carte Records (Soft Kill, Lesser Care, The True Faith).
