The Plan - "Pier Party Nerves"

I use the term "post punk" here quite a bit, probably too much to be honest. But, in my defense, it typically let all of you know exactly what a band sounds like. Now that we have The Plan, that term has been thrown off completely.

"Pier Party Nerves" is definitely post punk. However, while post punk tends to be very serious, artistic music, The Plan have a sense of fun. I hesitate to call them quirky since that can imply that they're a novelty or cute, and The Plan certainly aren't either of those. I guess they're quirky the way Talking Heads are quirky, but much more organic than the Talking Heads are. "Pier Party Nerves" has an oddly danceable groove, if you don't mind dancing very awkwardly.

You can watch the video for "Pier Party Nerves" below. The Plan's debut album, Nervous Energy, will be out on October 13 on Southend Records. You can pre-order a copy through Bandcamp. For more on The Plan, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
