Plaid were one of the acts that brought me into the world of electronic music. They played regularly in Dublin at festivals like DEAF and in the Temple Bar Music Centre and they always had a strong visual aesthetic (courtesy of Bob Jaroc mainly) to match their melodic and unique music.
It’s been over three years since we heard new music from Plaid. 2011’s Scintilli wasn’t one I gave a lot of time to for whatever reason. They’re back with the followup Reachy Prints, this month digitally and next month on vinyl. ‘Hawkmoth’ is the first track from it, a typically jaunty outing for the UK duo.
