Growing up in a musical inner-city household, indie-pop maestro Pluto Jonze had his mind blown early by the music of the 1960s, developing an obsession he never ever grew out of. Stints living in Berlin and Guatemala, a healthy penchant for the big pop stylings of Bowie, The Beatles and Beck and an impressive track record composing for stage and film have all contributed to the strange and exciting elixir of other-worldly electro-pulse and laptop pop that is Pluto Jonze.
With two massive singles, “Eject” and “Plastic Bag In A Hurricane”, getting high rotation on Triple J and community radio stations around the country, Pluto Jonze has established himself as a truly original and trailblazing artist. Coined as “a little bit Tame Impala, a little bit Verve” – Pluto Jonze’s hook-laden tunes are drenched with lush vocals, sequenced electronic lines, melody-soaked guitar and his signature Theremin sound and backed by an explosive live 3-piece - this is what the 60’s would’ve sounded like on another planet.
Add to that the fact that he’s shared the stage with the likes of They Might Be Giants, The Jezebels, Bluejuice, Jinja Safari, Buck 65, Vydamo and Dappled Cities, as well as a 7-date co-headline Australian tour with trop-pop outfit Cub Scouts, and it’s easy to understand the buzz around his name.
Pluto Jonze’s latest single -“Hispedangongonajelanguiro (Capiche?)” follows up on Eject perfectly with his brand of catchy, quirky-pop which is pushing the envelope like no other. With his debut album due on in mid-2013, keep your eyes and ears peeled for much, much more from this exciting talent.
“Pluto Jonze EP” & “Eject” & “Hispedangongonajelanguiro (Capiche?)” are out now through StopStart.
