Toby Davies (Planas) follows up the much acclaimed and heavily rotated Breathtaking single with his third release for Exceptional Blue label: Better Days .
Better Days shows Planas in full party mode. A merger of 80’s drums, lurching, distorted bass stabs and euphoric vintage rack synth chords, Better Days looks both backwards and forwards at the same time, harnessing the feel good sounds of the eighties and nineties and mashing them together with cutting edge production techniques and a mammoth slab of sub bass. Linn drum tom fills and wailing guitar lead lines punctuate this instrumental piece, which, after a goosebump-inspiring intro quickly develops into an intergalactic space funk explosion that’s like standing under a waterfall of pure sonic joy.
The main themes and motifs reoccur, evolving and weaving together with ease, showing Planas as both a master musician and master producer. Fans of Rustie, Hudson Mohawke and David Hasselhoff will definitely dig.
