“So Long” is a new track from Plutinos’ upcoming debut full-length album, releasing on 11/28. Nate Barnes’ project already impressed earlier this year with “Falling Away” — its dreamy appeal reminding of The Clientele. Based on “So Long” and from what I’ve heard of the forthcoming album, Barnes is expanding his sound into more rock-based fervency, with enhanced rhythm sections and swirling guitar tones. He retains the dreamy, hypnotic allure of his previous sound, while bolstering its overall feel with a more dynamic use of guitars and rhythms, as is the case on “So Long.” Dreamy vocals are adorned by a variety of nocturnal, trickling guitars and menacing distortion alike. It’s a thunderously fun showing, and one that hints at the excellence of Plutinos’ forthcoming album.
“So Long” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2018’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Rock.
