Plain is now a five-piece alternative rock band based in Lugano, Switzerland born at the end of 2004. The different musical backgrounds of each member are the essence of this blend of musical flavours winking to a British art rock approach.
The band has spent last year working hard with dedication and professional commitment on their debut LP album "Different Not Strange" released during this spring 2008.
Written, produced and performed by Plain with the collaboration of both Chris Sheldon (Oceansize, Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Roger Waters, etc.) for the mixing and Kevin Metcalfe (The Soundmasters, London) for the mastering, this debut album is hard to define or label because of the quirky sounds produced from this unusual combination of talents and personalities.
From the release in 2005 of their first five tracks self-produced promo EP, available in online stores and reviewed favorably by press, local newspapers and online international magazines, Plain started performing at some of the most significant Swiss venues, also playing support to groups from the international music scene and working with local artists, catching the attention of the public and the media in Switzerland, Europe and the United States.
Eclectic musicians such as Pino (drums), Nick (lead voice), Stefano (bass), Andrea (guitars) and Gianmaria (keyboards) are the core and engine of this band, giving energy and dynamism during their live shows as well as in the recorded product.
Finally our debut album "Different Not Strange" is available to be downloaded in major online stores!
