BandRockAlternative

The Plutonics have a modern pop sensibility with a moody rock edge. Catchy melody lines and glimmering guitars are focal creating happy sad songs reminiscent of The Cure and The Cranberries. Live shows are energetic and infectious!

Biography

The Plutonics are a rare gem from the Philadelphia area that can only be described as hauntingly beautiful. From beginning to end, each song is inventive and commands attention as singer /songwriter Jacquelyn Micaletti weaves hypnotic webs of eerie melody over sparse, intrinsic guitar accompaniments.

Adding ethereal atmospheric parts to the whole is Tom Cole on guitar. Using melody lines as a guide, Cole creates dynamic hooks and arrangements, setting apart great musicianship from mediocrity. This duo is complimented and grounded by the solid rhythm section of Dave Odell on bass and Scott Coble on drums. Odell and Coble create a solid driving union that elevates song structures to higher ground.

Lavish two and three part harmonies add to the spectral sound making the band’s sound driving, yet ethereal. The group’s style of songwriting is both haunting and soulful with vocals that are refreshingly original.

Lyrics

Once Divided

Written By: The Plutonics

I should have stayed away from this
I could have been somebody else
I should have known that this would
never have worked

I should have listened to myself
I could have known much better
I should have built a great big
wall around you

But once divided, has left me torn in two
I can't fathom, myself
You tear me apart and you fix me up with glue
so that you're sure that I can never change

I should have made myself a pact
therefore I will not change my ways
or be deserted 'cause i'm younger than you

tell me do I seem too attached?
don't want to hurt your chances...
of meeting someone else while we're together

But once divided, has left me black and blue
till I can't function, myself
You tear me apart, and the wrong pieces you glue
so that your sure that things will never change.

I could not ever tell a lie...
I could not stand to see you cry...
I could not ever tell a lie, I could not ever tell a...la la la lie

But once divided, has left me torn in two
I can't fathom, myself
You tear me apart and you fix me up with glue
so that you're sure that I can never...

Bargain

Written By: The Plutonics

In a room filled with honey
I've obtained bruises
that last for ages
it's become physical, and I can't ignore it.
heightens my senses, plays with my mind.

In my selfish phase I'm endlessly waiting
while our correspondence...
is few and far between.
Dressed up in black pinstripes...
you towered over me
never an obvious move...he'll catch me in time...in time

'Till I have to bargain my way out,
bargain my way, bargain my way out.

So tell me are you fooling?
Am I in denial?
You can't be serious, to think that nothing's wrong.
But I've become cynical, with no invitation
oh ambition is so naieve...
but still I buy in, right in.

'Till I have to bargain my way out,
bargain my way, bargain my way out.

Breathing Holes

Written By: The Plutonics

antagonist you cut my wave...
but like a renegade I spy ya.
so simple now, so simple how the truth
will come around to remind you
how every night I search for something
six o'clock already and the days half done.
you could say it's something,
but it always ends up nothing
I've got a worried mind with no time to pay.

They like to keep me in a plastic box
always with the lid on, sometimes not
I've got breathing holes,
it's just enough to keep me barely alive.
don't it make you want it more?

oh honey, so offended
we was two before we were was
now you don't recommend it,
how could I react bad? just cause.
I've spent another nightmare as your
carnival attraction oh my my.
It's about time you said what you meant.
It's about time I meant what I said. yeah.

They like to keep me in a plastic box
always with the lid on, sometimes not
I've got breathing holes,
it's just enough to keep me barely alive.
don't it make you want it more?

Seed

Written By: The Plutonics

I am a seed
fragile, uncovered.
bury me softly
into the ground
and i'll lie in wait
until you rid your garden of me
just like a weed.

when i grow my wings
i'll burn the bridges
soar above this
broken palace.

my enemy is my ignorance
to all who have faltered
to all who have sinned
it was sent to destroy
the only hope to be free.

on your high horse you will
cast the first stone
only to find your name on it
your agenda is hidden
for my defense
I wash my hands of this

and you've called me out now
I am guilty.
and I hope it gives you
the peace you've searched for.
