Ex-Counterparts Members Return as Plum, Premiere New Song

Plum, a new project featuringex-Counterparts members, are unveiling the first proper taste their tunes with “Division.”

The track, originally teased with a live clip on their Facebook page, makes good on multi-instrumentalistJesseDoreen’s (Counter-)parting promisethat he will “never stop creating music,” thoughsoothing emo dream pop might not be what one would expect. Vocalist Rachael Kross’ hypnotic vocals rest atop a bed subtle, swelling flourishes and an understated beat from Ryan Juntilla.

Thisfirst single was carefully selectedaccording to Doreen, who says, “We chose to release this song first because it encompasses the emotionally driven sound that our music reflects. Although this first release can be taken as a ‘slower song,’ the dramatic yet groovy sound is a consistent theme that we strive to portray with each release to come.”

The lyrics with a refrain “You sleep so sound / Ispend all night crying and walking around / At night Isearch for a life that’s mine / At night Isearch for it all the time” also reflect the band’s name.

“We chose the namePlumbecause how moody it sounds,” says Kross.”Plumis a colour I personally feel when being submerged into the sadness blue in combination with the burning love sensation red if that makes sense. Plumis all that is deeper and darker, and it really seemed fitting for this project.”

The project will trickle out three more songs they recorded with Brendon Padjasek in June 2017 throughout the year, all while writing and with plans to start playing shows in 2018.
