TUNE Halcion - Plans
Halcion’s most progressive song yet, “Plans” jumps between contrasting sections and keeps the
listener gripped. Following the ambient beginning, the snare-driven verse then enters, featuring
glitched-up guitar arpeggios complemented by a bouncy bassline. By the chorus, the song takes
a heavier turn, introducing distorted chords and a half-time drum beat. This heavier direction
continues to the end of the song, which contains a gradual build-up to a crescendo, with an
increased intensity from vocalist Sam Bowen’s delivery. For fans of Arcade Fire, Manchester
Orchestra, and Foals.
