Today PLANET (Took, Peppitt, bassist Jimmy Weaver and drummer Harry Stewart-Weeks ) stand alongside contemporary artists like Hatchie, Alvvays, Kurt Vile and the Middle Kids as artists writing music with a modern sense of nostalgia that sweeps people off their feet with its beauty and sincerity, while also possessing the sense of fun and light that is undeniably pristine pop. There’s a dreamy, ethereal presence that flows from start to finish in all of their songs, dancing between the shimmering guitar tones, the splashing cymbals and winding bass lines, as the buzzing texture of lead vocalist Took’s inimitable voice sings the kind of aching lyricism The Triffid’s David McComb would have been proud of – his words longing for lives and loves past with an equal sense of joy, humour and heartbreak.
Over the last few years the Sydney four-piece has gone from playing local pub gigs in their hometown to playing bigger and bigger stages across the globe, including the likes of The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Hit The North, Stag & Dagger, as well as mounting several headlining campaigns across the UK (their home away from home), where they’ve found fans and kindred spirits alike.
