Having been together since 2018, Brisbane’s The Plane Sailors are back with their debut EP which fuses indie-rock, pop and a sizeable dash of emo. Proudly proclaiming themselves as the ‘world’s happiest emo band’, the witty lead single is ‘Midlife’.
“It was great to have a song completely revolve around the guitars rather than the vocals, pretty chuffed to have them sound so expressive. “ Joseph Floyd (Guitar)
Sonically their new EP moves between shades of The Wombats, Blink-182 and Ball Park Music whilst at the same time demonstrating their creative energy as a young 5 piece band.
Writing and producing their entire EP in their bedrooms in Brisbane, vocalist Curtis Hooper says, “This EP is really the foundation of our band now. The themes range from being pretty unlucky to being really unlucky and just battling through that.”
Over the past year The Plane Sailors have ridden the wave of peaks and troughs of the music industry by releasing two singles ‘Strikeout’ and ‘The Bell Curve’. They’ve enjoyed success with airplay on Triple j Unearthed (#3 on the Indie Charts), SYN, Radio Adelaide, 2SER and 4ZZZ.
Joined by a selection of special guests, The Plane Sailors will be launching their EP ‘Wouldn’t Be So Lucky’ in Brisbane on Friday, April 29. The band are thrilled to be back onstage and could never be accused for taking themselves too seriously!
