Out of the ashes of O-Face rises Doubles, a new four-piece started by some of the members of that group. They’re now based in Philadelphia, and “Plant” is their first single. As far as introductions go, it’s a pretty good one: They keep the same buttery-smooth introspective rock that made their former band so memorable, but the music they’re making as Doubles feels both more accomplished and more urgent. “World’s a plant/ Let it grow,” they begin. “If you’re unwell/ Let me know.” The song’s positioned as a celebration of change, and encourages you to remove yourself from bad situations: “I gotta go!” the band exclaims as the song builds to climactic swell. Listen below.
“Plant” is out now.
