Planet Love Sound Interview

Planet Love Sound

‘My Shadow’ is the brand
new single from divine Melbourne-based psychedelic/experimental pop act, Planet
Love Sound
. I chat to the band to find out more.  Here is a little more info on the band. So read on and read the info and get to a show my friends.

Planet Love Sound are comprised of vocalist Tina Stefanou
and ex-Dukes Of Windsor members Joe Franklin and Oscar Dawson. They are a fully
independent Australian band with a powerful sound, and dynamic, chilling live
The trio have spent much of the past two years living in
their adopted ‘second home’ of Berlin, Germany, busy self-producing two EPs in
amongst supporting many international acts, such as Warpaint, Karen
Elson, and Holy F#@k
They have now returned to Melbourne and ‘My Shadow’ is the
second offering from their current EP, the aptly titled ‘Part 1’. The EP is the
first taste for Australian audiences of what this three piece have been working
on whilst living overseas, and is available from www.planetlovesound.com for
purchase as either digital download or 12" vinyl.  ‘Part 2’ will
be released later in the year. Stay tuned.
Both EPs were recorded and produced by the band themselves,
and mixed and mastered in Stockholm, Sweden, by producer Magnus Lindberg (Cult
of Luna, Tehachapi)
The new single ‘My Shadow’ comprises sweeping theatrical
vocals over lo-fi organic electronica, teetering between gothic extravagance
and the bittersweet subtlety of the final Moloko record. The single showcases a
synergy between psychedelic band elements, hip-hop laced grooves, tribal vocals
and synth-based beats. A video will be released for the track soon.
April 27 @ John Curtin Bandroom, Melbourne w/
special guests
May 5 @ X&Y Bar, Brisbane w/ Timothy
Carroll and special guests.
May 13 @ FBI Social, Sydney w/ 1929 Indian and
Jason & The Lyrebirds.


1. How did did you get into music?

I guess it’s always the same story repeated when it comes to music. It happened naturally for each of us. We were always there.

2. What has been the highlight so far?

Performing, recording and connecting across two continents.

3. What inspires you when writing music?

Love and the fight.

4. What was the inspiration for the single?

The tension and release in relationships with others and ourselves. Emracing dark places and spaces.

5. Who have you enjoyed playing with recently?

Grunge Safari. 9 people. A union between two bands. PLS and Tehachapi
(the lead singers of both bands are brother and sister).

6. How has social networking helped your music?

this day and age there is no question about how important social
networking is for bands and naturally is a big part of helping PLS get
our music out there. 

7. What advice could you give to some one wanting to give a career in a music a shot?

Write songs and keep writing songs – don’t get sucked into the ‘industry’ side of things.

8. How has touring helped your music?

is best way to connect with people. For PLS our strongest asset to date
is our live show as we don’t yet have a recording that we feel truly
represents us. It’s what music is all about.

9. Who would the band most like to work with or play with?

love to connect and collaborate with other artists. One cool thing that
is happening soon is that street artist MEGGS will be collaborating
with us for our Sydney show on May 13.

10. How has radio and the media received the latest single?

Community radio has picked it up. No love from Triple J yet which is cool, they’ll come around…eventually. 

11. What is next for yourself?

upcoming Australian tours. Recording an album. Organising some events
to raise money for the Against Malaria Foundation and also http://familiamoja.org/.
