Pluko’s new album, ‘COLOR BLIND’, is out today! Pluko is also releasing the COLOR BLIND album film, exclusively premiering on Proximity. Clocking in at 44:44, the same length as the album, the visual is a hypnotic and cinematic compliment to the audio release.
COLOR BLIND is a majestic 13-track record full of unfettered imagination and genre-pushing musicality. pluko demonstrates his technical prowess throughout the album, dabbling with grandiose percussion, multi-layered production, and glistening synthwork. He buries hidden tidbits throughout the album, like the morse code poem on “i hope its not goodbye,” and the spoken French at the end of “rainbow,” making for an interactive and innovative listening experience. In addition to his solo work on the album, pluko also collaborated with artists like Panama, ilo ilo, Nate Traveller, and Cassette Tapes, expanding his sound into new genre territories. “My entire goal for COLOR BLIND was to write something that everyone can enjoy and listen to, even non-electronic fans,” pluko writes. “I tried to create a vibe that feels extremely fresh. Something that nobody has heard before.”
COLOR BLIND is Pluko’s second studio album. His debut album, ‘sixteen,’ was released in 2018 on Odesza’s Foreign Family Collective, and was followed by his independently released mixtape, ‘CLASS XIX,’ in Summer 2019. At only 20-years-old, Hollidaysburg, PA native Sam Martinsen has grown pluko into an internationally renowned project. His releases have racked up over 60 million streams across platforms, leading to major festival slots at Coachella, Firefly Festival, and HARD Summer. Last year, pluko launched Splendid Society, a record label, collective, and fashion brand.
