WARPLANE (guitar, drums, synth/vocal) exists to explore comfort and discomfort. Melodies repeated start to feel hypnotic or unsettling. From those states, a subtle shift can feel revelatory. Like a new crack in the wall suddenly letting a shard of light in. Riffs and phrases fold back on themselves - more stylised with each repeat - slowly giving rise to unrepeatable events.
Warplane combines geometric guitar lines, propulsive drums that verge on the tribal, ghostly synths, subs that embrace or unsettle, and vocals that float like an ephemeral scent that you can’t quite place. It is a band forensically examining the less obvious choices. This is not pop music.

DRIFT is the debut single by Warplane. A stark vocal strives like a candle trying to illuminate a cavern. Smoky synth melodies emerge wafting through the ribcage of guitar, only to dematerialise. The insistent two-step tom-tom beat is a tug on the sleeve from someone whose eye contact you were trying to avoid.
Drift is available to stream or download on August 2.
