The Plurals longtime studio collaborator Eric “CrookedSound” Merckling (whose long performance and production credits include recording/ mixing all three Plurals albums) has been quietly toying with stop-motion animation for the last couple years and we’re all honored here at GTG that his debut feature for this skill is now out in the form of a music video for a song from the new Plurals album. “Rock N Roll” is probably the most chaotic song on the album, alternating between dreamy verses, sludgy choruses, a CCR-quoting bridge section and scattered Pixies-esque vocals, so it might as well also be the soundtrack to a sci-fi epic starring The Plurals. Our protagonist is a brave Nich Plural who must rescue Hattie and Tommy from the clutches of an evil alien band that is attempting to steal The Plurals’ thunder and maybe erase them from existence? You should watch it a few times to get all of the little story bits and Easter eggs that Eric slips in. Above all, it’s super cool to look at. Another 2015 victory for GTG!
