Plantoid’s debut album Terrapath harnesses prog rock, jazz, fusion, folk, and even a bit of ‘70s hard rock for good measure. It was released this year on Bella Union (the label founded by Simon Raymonde and Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins).

“The sounds, the art, and where our minds go while we’re playing the album takes us to this alien planet that no humans have reached.”

Chloe Spence, vocals and guitar

Plantoid are one of those bands that exceed the sum of their parts, with each member bringing a unique flavour that enhances their sound tenfold. Tom has been playing guitar practically his whole life, and his style, which fluctuates from lush finger-picking to reverb-laden rock riffs, sits very comfortably on top of Louis’ jazz-infused drumming and Bernardo’s intricate basslines. The band find their ace-in-the-hole with Chloe, however—as well as serving as Plantoid’s principle lyricist, her soaring vocals, at times both angelic and alien, propel each song on Terrapath to new heights.
