Impulse Voices will serve as the follow up to Plini’s 2018 debut Sunhead, with the Sydney instrumentalist releasing the new record on Friday November 27.
Recorded alongside drummer Chris Allison and bassist Simon Grove, who also mixed and co-produced the project, Impulse Voices sees Plini pair up with guests such as The 1975’s saxophonist John Waugh and celebrated keys player Dave Mackay, with Amy Turk, Devesh Dayal and Aleksandra Djelmash also contributing electro-acoustic harp and additional production respectively.
Largely completed during the first half of the year, Plini mentions that Impulse Voices was “an extremely fun, rewarding and explorative process – the closest I’ve felt to the free-spiritedness I had when I first started writing music (way before ever releasing it), but informed by everything I’ve learnt and experienced in the last few years of tours and travel.
“To make an analogy, I feel like I designed a pretty cool house for the listener to inhabit with these songs, but it was made truly special by the masterfully-crafted furnishings and decorations added by Chris, Simon and the rest of the musicians involved.”
Plini has also shared the lead single from the upcoming project ‘I’ll Tell You Someday’, a chop-busting instrumental track which he calls “a big, warm, instrumental hug, in a time when I feel everyone could use one.”
