Perfect Plan have seen their star rapidly rise in the genre since they released their debut single, ‘In and Out of Love’ in 2018. Over the course of two studio albums and one covers EP, the band has proved themselves to be musicians and songwriters of the highest quality, leaving fans with an insatiable thirst for more material. And thus, it seems the ‘perfect’ time for the band to give the fans a special release to whet their appetites while they wait for more new music. Based on fan requests for a proper physical and digital release of the band’s 2020 live from the studio performance that was posted on YouTube, the band and the label decided it was time to give the full performance a proper release as a live album, so please enjoy “Live at Sharpener’s House”
During the pandemic lock-down of 2020, Perfect Plan got together a “live in studio” performance, which their label Frontiers released on YouTube at the end of 2020. A fun, fully plugged-in performance that also includes acoustic performances of four songs, including a cover of Giant’s ‘Stay’.
With two studio albums released thus far, Perfect Plan have established themselves as one of the very finest new wave of AOR bands currently operating, not just in Sweden, but in the world at large.
The band debuted in 2018 with their first single “In and Out of Love,” the video for which has since gained more than one million views on YouTube. The debut album that followed, “All Rise” immediately put the band on the radar of the melodic rock faithful and classified Perfect Plan as a band to “watch out for”. Their sophomore album, “Time for a Miracle” was another juggernaut of AOR infused melodic hard rock that thrilled and delighted fans and showed the band easily casting off any concerns of a ‘sophomore slump’.
Perfect Plan embodies the best parts of the melodic rock genre: exceptional songwriting and skilled musicianship which highlights melody, harmony, and groove. Incredibly strong vocals and vocal arrangements, synth embellishment, killer guitar solos, and catchy refrains complete the recipe for success.
