REVOLUTIONARIES BY PLATE (Link to sound recording. Click here to listen)
It gives me great pleasure to share with you one of the tracks off a recent studio album project I just completed tracking the drums for.
The band is called PLATE, fronted by the uber talented multi-instrumentalist and composer, Zhong Ren Koh. “Revolutionaries” in my opinion encapsulates everything the band represents musically: Psychedelic-Alternative Rock with a huge sound containing lots of delicious aural textures, a whirlwind of moods, and a gumbo pot of grooves mainstream, exotic, and everything in-between…To top it all off, deeply introspective existential lyrics are offered for the most literary of listeners.
This track will be part of the forthcoming debut album called “Tear Down The Marketplace”
