Plyers are a self-described ‘outsider noise’ outfit that are equal parts amp and analogue worship.
Trying to locate the centre of Melbourne trio’s sound is no easy task. ‘Clear’ oscillates wildly between gritty post-punk, grinding noise, warbling synth drones and screeching feedback.
They seem inspired in-part by the menace and energy of groups like Daughters, Lightning Bolt and NoMeansNo, but also eager to push beyond the narrow confines of simplistic genre labels. This makes their music so unpredictable and captivating.

This record somehow manages to slow down time! I enjoy the overall sound of the instruments and especially the voice. Either listen to this in a dark room and relax or crank up the volume and feel the fuzz!
