Plini Joined By Animals As Leaders’ Tosin Abasi On New Track “Still Life”


Acclaimed Australian guitarist Plini is joined by modern guitar hero Tosin Abasi of Animals As Leaders on his just released single, “Still Life“. A video for that has made its way to the internet below. The song will appear on Plini‘s forthcoming EP “Mirage“, due out December 01st.

Plini said of the track:

“It’s hard to know where to start with this song – it contains some of my favourite abstract drumming by Chris Allison, amazing bass playing and some very unsettling mixing by Simon Grove, and is the first song I’ve shared from the EP featuring live string arrangements by my longtime friend AJ Minette.

It’s also my first recording using an oud. Then there’s the video, my usual collaborators Jamie McVicker and Declan Blackall managed to make something that feels, in the best way possible, like more of a weird audio visualiser than a “proper” music video, and Emily Jansz created the perfect set for it. You should have smelled the room after having a raw fish in it all day!”

As for teaming up with Abasi, Plini offered:

Tosin was one of the main inspirations for me getting into writing guitar-centric music in the first place. His band, Animals As Leaders, took me on some of my first tours around the world and we’ve since become good friends, so to have him play on one of my songs is something that teenage me would never even have dreamed of. Such a treat!”
