New Music: PLYA – Thinking Of You

PLYA (Playa, like the Spanish word for beach) are lead singer/keyboardist Julia Sykes, guitarist Kris Taylor and drummer William Brown. They describe their sound as ‘cinematic synthpop’ and that certainly sums up Thinking Of You, which channels the sensation of watching a John Hughes movie for the first time – every word, every sound, every emotion bringing joy and pleasure.

Superficially it feels like a love song, as in the best movies there’s always a subplot to factor in to the equation! Julia Sykes says that Thinking Of You was ‘inspired by the bitter sweet feeling of being separated from someone you have a fiery connection with’.

You can sense that emotion in very word and note, like you’re living it with her!

The song is out now, streaming and download details can be found here and for more information on the band, head on over to their official website!
