"FUTUROSPECTIVE"

Certain artists pull you in. Hearing them makes you say “I could do that. I should do that!” The Ramones. The Minutemen. (Shit, The Minutemen said it from the damned stage! Watt still ends concerts by tellin’ folks to “start their own band, paint their own picture, etc…”) The Plurals belong in this company. Seeing them live is revelatory. They’re one of the few groups today whose influences aren’t merely contemporary, yet they don’t fall into some retro trap either. (The days of them being some 90s knock-off are, like, over man.) They simply play rock music, styles and conventions and trends be damned. - Razorcake


"The Plurals - The Plurals Today, The Plurals Tomorrow: A Futurospective"

Roaring out of your speakers with a positively infectious burst of pure intoxicating joy and boundless go-for-it vitality, this incredibly snappy 9 song album just makes you wanna get up and bounce all over your room with a huge giddy grin on your face. The snarly vocals sneer it up with terrifically ferocious aplomb while the grinding hacksaw guitars, churning’n’burning basslines, and persistent pushin’ drums raise one hell of a gloriously raggedy-ass racket. This is the sort of straight-up no-bullshit punked-out rock’n’roll noise that eschews needless fancy schamcy pretense and instead goes right for the jugular with rip-snorting fury and abandon. Accolades don’t come much better than that. - Jersey Beat

Bio

The Plurals employ a classic power trio approach: guitar, bass, and drums, no frills or gimmicks, no effects pedals, just instruments, dynamics, and voices, with songwriting and vocal duties shared by all three members. Formed by three high school friends - Tommy (guitar), Nich (bass), and Hattie (drums) The Plurals are based in Lansing, Michigan and have been releasing music and touring the country DIY-style since 2007.

The Plurals' music is heavily inspired by 1980s punk and alternative bands like Husker Du, The Replacements, Dinosaur Jr, and Pixies, but the different pulls of three contributing songwriters keeps things fresh, with Razorcake magazine proclaiming in 2011: "Seeing them live is revelatory. They're one of the few groups today whose influences aren't merely contemporary, yet they don' fall into some retro trap either. They simply play rock music, styles and conventions and trends be damned." Over the course of two albums (2008's "Whatevers Forever" and 2011's "The Plurals Today, The Plurals Tomorrow: A Futurospective") and several EPs for independent labels GTG Records (MI), Minor Bird Records (MT), Something Dancey (CA), and Bermuda Mohawk Productions (MI), The Plurals have taken this blend of rock and roll influences across the punk spectrum, incorporating classic pop songwriting and garage rock production to build a strong musical catalog - with one LP and two EPs slated to be added in 2015. Catch them in your town - they're certainly on their way - to experience the joy, sweat, laughter, and bewilderment that only the purest rock and roll can provide.
