Plàsi – 'Where I belong' (single)
Plàsi’s last single, ‘Remember’, was sufficiently impressive to merit a fast return for the Swedish singer-songwriter.
‘Where I belong’ is the title track from his third EP which was released on the same day (May 29th).
He says, “My new EP describes how I rediscovered the passion I thought I had lost. After years of endless search for the right answer I realised it was lying next to me, closer than I had ever dared to look before. Surrounded by music. Where I Belong.”
I don’t know, there seems to be a lot of (self) discovery going on right now in the music business, with male singer-songwriters at the forefront. It reminds me of the 1980s and all those artists/bands trying to understand love. Remember Foreigner’s ‘I want to know what love is’? That was their rallying call.
Hand on heart I don’t think this one is quite as good as ‘Remember’ but at least it escapes from the irritating bass/percussion opening which might have queered the pitch for it.
While it remains throughout the song it is overtaken and subdued by the convincing vocal.
The most important thing is that the lads are evidently having a good time on their Inter- Rail/road trip across Europe.
