with beautiful harmonies that only two identical twins could create.
Tehachapi is a wave of sweet, swirling melodies that surround the
listener in an ocean of sound.
PLANET LOVE SOUND
Planet Love Sound (aka P L S), is a fully independent Australian
experimental/ psychedelic pop band with a powerful sound and dynamic
live show. The band cites Portishead, Radiohead, Jefferson Airplane
and Tom Waits as important influences, personally writing and
recording all their material from home studios in Berlin and
Vocalist Tina Stefanou and bassist Joe Franklin met at music school in
the early 2000s and the two immediately bonded over Björk, Beck and
The Beatles. In 2005, Joe was invited to join Australian indie-rock
band Dukes of Windsor by his soon-to-be band mate and guitarist, Oscar
Dawson. Whilst recording their second album, the Dukes found
themselves in the icy north of Sweden, where Joe and Oscar met
producer Magnus Lindberg. After falling in love with the home-made
demos, Magnus now mixes all P L S tracks from his studio in Stockholm.
P L S relocated to Berlin in 2009 and there the band embarked on a
journey that pushed them artistically and musically. Audiences praised
the P L S sound, and several inspirational support slots were crucial
in establishing their Berlin fan-base; firstly, for Canadian
four-piece Holy F#@k, then for alt-country singer/songwriter Karen
Elson, and most recently LA-based chick- rockers Warpaint. Returning
to Australia for the summer of 2010/2011, P L S played a series of
sell-out shows in their hometown of Melbourne and also embarked on
several national headline tours.
