New Plenty Single

Plenty have released Hide as a new single from their forthcoming album It Could Be Home. The single is available on the major streaming / download platforms – listen / download here.

Hide is one of the few Plenty pieces that betrays the band’s origins as part of the thriving Liverpool Post-Punk/Art Pop scene of the 1980s. It was written in 1987 and was an important part of the live performances we did at the time. All two of them! I always liked the fact that the song itself hid a dark lyric about mental illness and the desire for retreat behind a jaunty and propulsive musical facade. As I croon about someone’s tragic decline and stasis, Brian and David’s playing exudes something joyous and surprising. The lyric was inspired by a friend who also provided part of the inspiration behind no-man’s Animal Ghost.” Tim Bowness
