Plumes is the new project of former Flotilla members Geof Holbrook and Veronica Charnley. They recently released a full length self-titled LP. At first, they might seem like another female fronted Canadian folk artist, however there’s so much more to Plumes’ music. They play around with 20th century harmonies and that might seem a bit strange. Phonebooth is the perfect example. The flutes almost seem like they don’t fit. The guitars start off in a predictable pattern, but then they modulate unexpectedly. However this lush instrumentation is a beautiful messy plunge into something quite special. Twists and turns keep you listening and I recommend you do go over to their Bandcamp and hear the rest.
