“‘As Above’, the first single from Hartlepool band Plaza, is sort of what you imagine The xx or Foals would sound like as a lo-fi garage band. Mixing a fuzzy bassline with interlocking guitar parts, the band have managed to encapsulate, as they put it, “cold beer in July with all the trimmings.” The Indiependent

Plaza are a 5-Piece from Hartlepool who spent a while writing new songs and discovering their sound before releasing their ace debut EP. They juxtapose clean and ambient post-indie licks against staccato bombardments of heavy laden sound in a manner that will earn them comparisons to the Big Scary Monsters roster past and present, as well as much missed Teesside band DARTZ!
