Srish: Amongst the bunch of hearts you’ve won and inspiration you have been in the last 2 years, “The End of Everything” still contained a new element of you as it also contains your vocal recording debut. How was the experience like and what more do you think you want to achieve as a musician and life in terms of experience?
Plini: It wasn’t a particularly major event – I was recording acoustic guitar one day and while the microphone was plugged in figured I’d try adding some vocals as an instrument as I’ve always loved the sound of singing with no words. It is definitely something I’ll do again, although I’ll probably get a decent singer next time haha. On that note, I’d love to write some actual ‘songs’, with a singer or two taking care of the vocals and lyrics. Hard to say in terms of life, but in terms of near-future experience I just wanna spend a lot of time playing with real humans, for real humans!
Srish: Quoting you, “these three EPs are little musical snapshots of where I’ve been, what I’ve learnt and who I’ve met over the last 2 or 3 years”. If you had to describe this journey in 3 lines, what would you say? How has this whole journey changed you as a person and a musician.
Plini: Three lines & lessons: Other Things – committing to doing a full-length album while being a full-time student is hard. Sweet Nothings – never let old demos go to waste. The End of Everything – Marco Minnemann makes everything better. I don’t really know if it’s changed me as a person or musician in any significant way, but it has made me think that there is some chance I could turn this into a living (if I don’t run out of ideas) – which is definitely not something I would have thought about when I started!
