Melodramatic pop folk rock & goth…

Born in a squat in Brixton, growing up in New Zealand (Aro Valley) and presently residing in Melbourne, Australia, Plum Green combines elements of folk, grunge, goth, and post-rock with her dark lyrical prose. With a focus on crafting intimate live shows her performances are striking and uplifting. Plum’s musical releases have been described as a collection of dark textures with lyricism containing intriguing subject matter. Described as luscious, dark and deeply literate, Plum Green’s music and lyrics have always had this mix of youthful wisdom, naïve worldliness, a corrupt innocent, which makes them heady and intriguing. Plum has released three E.Ps – Plum Green, The Red, Karma) and the album Rushes.

Plum and her band recently finished recording a full-length album at the all-analogue Sound Recordings studio in Castlemaine. They have released the first single from this album ‘Baby Bird’, and named the album Sound Recordings after the studio they recorded in. Baby Bird is available now as a digital single, as well as a 7” record which includes the b-side ‘Little Black Pain on Bandcamp. Sound Recordings will be released in February 2019 on a variety of digital formats on the internet. Physical sales (CDs) of ‘Sound Recordings’ will be released in New Zealand in February with two performances in the major New Zealand cities of Wellington (2nd Feb at Meow w Waterfalls + The Deadbeat Dads) and Auckland. Plum and the band also have plans for a second European tour in 2020.
