The title of East London duo Plant Plants’ song “Embrace the Real” probably tells you all you need to know about its mood. It’s loaded but slightly ambiguous, allowing you to stuff with word “real” with whatever under-embraced moments your life needs coming to terms with, be they wild nights or breakups. Produced by Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco, “Embrace” unfolds low-stress vocals, subdued but rolling dance percussion, and a guitar loop that curls like a lily blooming. Plant Plants’ second EP, conveniently titled EP 2, comes out June 18th on This Is Music.
