Big favourites of RT are back with their second album and it has been well worth the wait! LA-based duo Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton break the group's almost five year silence with their most confident, catchy, fully-realized music to date, featuring behind the scenes contributions from Joanna Newsom, Haim, and Justin Young from The Vaccines. Recorded in LA, Plural infuses Electric Guest's off-kilter blend of electronic, pop and R&B with an even more adventurous spirit than on 2012's Mondo. Written during a period of self-reflection, Plural embraces Taccone and Compton's original instincts, forgoing detailed arrangements and falsettos in favour of a back-to-basics approach – strong, natural vocals, intuitive musical instinct, and unbridled inspiration. The result is a sonic mélange that sounds as if it’s from both the past and future, layering everything from 80s synths to iPhone drum machines to Latin and Caribbean percussion.
