The Higher Planes - Soul Folk Psych Live Act in London

The Higher Planes Short Info

The Higher Planes are a new old-fashioned 6-piece folk rock and soul group based in South London.

The sound is hard edged folk-soul overlaid with a multi-layered vocals. The songs are reflections and questions posed on just what to make of the upside-down era in which we find ourselves, and serve as a reminder that despite our modern affectations, not a lot has changed since man first put hand to string.

Big Tree Music (2016):
"In contrast to their catchy grooves, The Higher Planes populate their songs with imagery of lying politicians, downtrodden lovers and the occasional dose of psychedelic nihilism."
