Guitar virtuoso Plini streams sparkling new track Kind

Australian guitar virtuoso Plini has released a stream of his brand new single Kind.

It follows the launch of the video for Salt + Charcoal which was premiered exclusively with Prog last week.

Both tracks will feature on Plini’s upcoming EP Sunhead, which will arrive on July 27 and is now available for pre-order via Bandcamp.

Speaking recently with Prog, Plini said: “The Sunhead EP is, loosely, an extension of this theme of traveller's excitement. It ventures, on some songs, to the point of sensory overload and borderline insanity, and on others, to a necessary calmness.”

The release comes ahead of Plini’s August European tour. Following those dates, he’ll hit the road with Tesseract and Between The Buried And Me throughout November.
