Today, PLVTINUM is unveiling his much-anticipated new EP, “AN HONEST ACCOUNT OF THE MORE UNSAVORY ASPECTS OF MY BEING.”
A stylistic departure from his previous releases, “AN HONEST ACCOUNT OF THE MORE UNSAVORY ASPECTS OF MY BEING” sees PLVTINUM exploring the darker aspects of his psyche. Exploding with propulsive and cinematic production, the record is not for the faint of heart.
Over the course of the seven tracks, PLVTINUM takes listeners on a journey through the toxic and untamed sides of himself as a method of catharsis.
“Instead of shying away from my ego problems and somewhat nihilistic tendencies, I highlight them in bold font,” he says.
Earlier this week, PLVTINUM released the first visual from the project, the music video for ‘STRESS ME OUT.’
Directed by Eileen Yoon from Ozu Was Right, the video intercuts through several setups within a studio: a shrine, a water tank, and performance takes with dramatic lighting. Through parallel storylines, these vignettes show the escalation of his god complex and mania as he heads toward his inevitable downfall.
Somewhere between a suburban misfit and a loudmouthed twenty-something, PLVTINUM isn’t your typical squeaky clean pop star. Blending the sonic textures of EDM, pop-punk attitude, and catchy pop-R&B, the New York-based artist unapologetically explores the darker sides of the human experience.
With lyrics that touch on toxic relationships, sex, nihilism, ego, and party culture, PLVTINUM has captured the attention of the post-teen crowd and emerged as a defining voice in the alt-pop space.
He first broke out with his 2016 viral hit, ‘Champagne & Sunshine,’ but his ever-growing catalog and fanbase — 3M Spotify monthly listeners, 86K Instagram followers, 1B+ cumulative streams — has proved that he’s much more than a one-hit-wonder.
