Musically inclined young people are coming out of the woodwork younger and younger, but with a refreshing shine in their eyes that we can’t help but listen. This time we are preparing for COLOR BLIND, the second album by pluko, which is now available for pre-order. Hailing from Hallidaysburg, this Pennsylvanian native Sam Martinsen’s love for unique music has driven him to elevate pluko into the international project we know today. At a mere 19 years old, pluko has slotted and performed at major festivals such as Coachella, Firefly Festival, and HARD Summer, as well as racking up over 60 million streams across all platforms. If you didn’t think this was enough, pluko also launched the record label, collective, and fashion brand Splendid Society. The brand will be releasing a limited run of COLOR BLIND merch along with the album release.
“My entire goal for COLOR BLIND was to write something that everyone can enjoy and listen to, even non-electronic fans. I tried to create a vibe that feels extremely fresh. Something that nobody has heard before. I wanted people to hear this album and instantly think ‘oh that’s that new pluko sound.’ – pluko
While pluko made quite a significant splash with his initial debut album sixteen, COLOR BLIND is going to be quite the departure from what we know now. Taking the chance to experiment away from his norm, pluko utilized more synth work and cinematic sounds than prior releases. Also COLOR BLIND allowed pluko to work and collaborate with other artists and producers like Panama and Nate Travellers. The album will consist of 13 songs, including pluko’s last four singles and nine additional new songs. If you want to get a sneak peek of the album, make sure you check out the single “higher w/ Panama” on Soundcloud.
