PLANNINGTOROCK is Janine Rostron, a musician and visual artist from Bolton who’s been based in Berlin for the last ten years. Planningtorock release a 9″ blue vinyl single (yes, you read that right!). A ball of energy that landed by happy accident in the middle of the art, fashion and music worlds, Planningtorock has allowed Janine to travel the globe performing at gig venues and arts events, with recent collaborations including the opera score for Tomorrow, in a Year with The Knife and Mt Sims.
She stretches sounds and curdles her voice, a queasy rococo rush that has an intoxicating quality. Songs seethe with throbbing electronic pulse and jabbing pizzicato, an unsettling yet heady allure.
Plus support from CREEP two girls from Brooklyn producing dark brooding electronica with shades of the gothic mastery that links them to other dark acts like Zola Jesus and Salem. An apt support as Planningtorock has already guested on their tracks, as have Nina Sky and The xx’s Romy Madley-Croft provided guest vocals on their recent seductive single “Days”, released on Young Turks. Though they’ve mainly been spending their time of late acting as producers, the few live shows they’ve done have been packed, exciting affairs.
Plus DJ set from ROMY (The xx)
