about

‘00s Nostalgia with The Plimptons’ is the new album by 6-piece Glasgow band The Plimptons, who have been honing their brand of DIY pop for 11 years. This, their 3rd album, retains the quintessentially Plimptons sense of melody and fun, but expands the scope to make an ambitious, resonant and masterfully executed pop album. The album includes the single ‘Lonely Old Man’ described by BB6’s Tom Robinson as “just genius”.

The album is the product of 2 years recording and a decades-worth of living for the 6-piece, the 15 songs running the gamut across every side of the perfect pop polyhedron: From tortured new wave to stomping northern soul; from a Phil Spector sized ballad to immediate and sharp punk hectoring; from stuttering glam hooks to a 6-minute epic that goes from jazz-tinged heartbreak to club-ready electro and back again.
