Say Hello To: PLYA

Alt-pop trio PLYA have just released their latest single, Dynamite. Check it out below, and read on to find out a bit more about them!

Where did your band name come from?

We wrote a lot of our music in LA and were lucky enough to stay with a friend of ours right on the beach whilst recording.  We thought PLYA (taken from the Spanish word “playa” for beach) fitted our sound perfectly.
Is there a favourite venue of yours in your hometown and why do you like it?
Our favourite venue in London is Omeara. The sound is great, it still feels intimate and it’s only 10 minutes form our studio.
What is your favourite gig you have played so far?
Our favourite gig so far has to be our debut headline show at Camden Assembly.  We sold the venue out and Kris even had a cheeky stage dive at the end of the set.
If you had to describe your own sound, how would you put it?

We sound like the ocean swallowing the chaos of the city.  Think; dreamy electronic textures, driving guitars and anthemic melodies.

Which act would you love to support?
We would love to support Banks. She’s amazing.
