Today marks the release of Canadian indie-alternative band, Plants new single, “Misery Business”.
The band shares on the single,
“I took a concept like depression and treated it as if it was the woman who haunted my mind, because depression and my past relationships have had common traits such as, unfaithfulness, narcissism, manipulation, and deception.”

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
I am Alex Valenzuela singer and songwriter for my band Plants. We are a collaborative group of artists that combine elements of psychedelic rock and pop to bring a new age twist on timeless music that inspires us all.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Our music is derived from early exposure of classic rock vinyls and music that our parents grew up on. We gravitated towards psychedelic rock and pop because of its progressive structure and sound. I usually write based on experience, but for the music, I have recently created I tried to resonate a message through relatable material and topics that are relevant today.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We are currently working on ourselves and trying to polish not only our sound but our band as well so we are looking to book shows in the future. When we have played live most reactions we get is that our passion and soundscapes really reverb through the room creating a psychedelic atmosphere and experience.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
That would be our single “The Loop”, it is the best representation of our direction in music, we had many approaches to our sound but The Loop is definitively our sound
