The creative process behind Plum Green’s dreamy new EP, ‘Lions In Darkness’

Plum Green

When did you first start making music and what led you there?

I started writing songs when I was very little as a way of entertaining myself and my friends. I borrowed a guitar and realised I could match chords to songs on the radio and I found it really fun and interesting.

Tell us about your upcoming EP, Lions In Darkness.

Every time I write, it’s always from a place of wanting to comfort and be comforted. Lions In Darkness is all about people watching out for each other. When all hope feels lost, there’s always something out there that will understand you.

How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it?

I think it’s dreamy, folky and dark alternative, but ultimately I’m just feeling around in the dark most of the time. I like testing melodies and words and finding the right fit. It just has to be honest and express things truthfully above all.

What can we expect from your upcoming shows at The Catfish and The Curtin?

I’m very lucky to be playing with some of the best musicians and people I know. They’re incredibly talented and build my songs like magic. Playing live is always scary, but I love talking, engaging and building a shared energy with the audience.

Any shows or new music Plum Green fans should be keeping an eye out for?

I’m writing a lullaby album for adults called Somnambulistic which will be different from everything I have previously released and is very exciting for me. Then we will go on tour through Europe in September next year.

Plum Green performs at The Catfish on Saturday August 24 and The Curtin on Sunday September 8 to celebrate her new EP, Lions In Darkness. Head to her Facebook page for more info and tickets.
