There’s something very likeable about this. Introducing Pluto Jonze – the newest signing to the Stop Start label, home to the likes of Hungry Kids Of Hungary – and his debut single ‘Meet You Under Neon’.
The track has now been serviced to Australian media – and we have to say that we like very much what we hear.
Of course, Pluto is not his real name – that would be Lachlan, but after entering the Tropfest competition a couple of years ago and a subsequent spell of songwriting, Lachlan’s pop alter-ego started to grow stronger – to the point where Pluto has now left Lachlan languishing in the past.
As for ‘Meet You Under Neon’, there’s an electro-pop bent to the tune with plenty of bleeps and beeps, there’s stabs of distorted synths, a driving bass and Pluto’s voice which demands attention.
The very clever video (below) reveals a wonderful story of love that given time, could become something altogether amazing. Of course, if they could find each other beneath the glimmer of possibly Australia’s most famous sign, that might be a start.
Pluto’s self-titled debut EP is set for release on Friday May 06.
