Brisbane indie rockers The Plane Sailors follow up their earlier 2021 single 'Strike Out' with the tongue-in-cheek charm of 'Bell Curve' – a song that looks for goodness within glum scenarios.

"This is not your cliche story, I'm sick of happy endings, they feel so boring," sings Curtis Hooper, the band adding a tinge of emo to their sound.

"We shared a lot of drafts of 'Bell Curve' with people in the scene and took in as much input as we could," Curtis says. "Getting varied, honest feedback was really important to us so we could produce a song everyone would enjoy."

Recorded in Hooper's bedroom, before moving to complete the session in bassist James Glenleft's spare room, the recording process was a period of growth and development for the band within itself.

"You're likely gonna have to do a lot more for yourself in the studio than you think," band member Joseph Floyd says.

"Whether it's adding in the extra layers, redoing your mate's part for them that they hastily punched in on their lunch break, or spending time alone because the others forgot to show up to press the record button for you; it's all worth it in the end."

Ahead of the song's release on Wednesday (24 November), scenestr is stoked to premiere 'Bell Curve' today. Enjoy.


The Plane Sailors play Black Bear Lodge (Brisbane) 16 December.
