Plàsi Shares New Track “Far from Home”
August 20, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Out today, Swedish-Greek indie folk singer, songwriter, producer, and artist Plàsi (born Mikael Bitzarakis) shares “Far from Home,” the first single from a forthcoming album. On the track, a meditative epic about “the feeling of suddenly losing all that felt familiar in your surroundings,” Plàsi embraces the unknown: “Far from all we have learned,” singing, “the world is tilting, soon turned.“
When it came time to lay this new song down, Plàsi teamed up with Linus Hasselberg and Hannes Hasselberg, the talented Swedish brothers who also helmed the ship on his previous EPs Mystery and last year’s Where I Belong.
About the song, Plàsi says: “The song is about suddenly losing all that felt familiar. The daily life experiences that we had taken for granted – from random encounters to family gatherings – were suddenly gone. Also, topics we fought for, such as open borders and solidarity around the refugee crisis, suddenly weren’t a part of the national agenda anymore. My surroundings went from a world that I felt part of to one that felt very far from home.”
Last month, Plàsi released a collaborative track called “Chaos” with Icelandic singer-songwriter and labelmate Axel Flóvent. From that collaboration, “a musical kinship” has led to a 2022 co-headline tour (dates below). Speaking about the track and tour, Plàsi had said, “When I first met Axel, I immediately felt it click between us. After writing together, it’s clear there’s a musical kinship. I can’t wait to share that kind of creative ‘love at first sight’ moment with this track and later with the 2022 co-headline tour!“
