London-based duo Plaitum, vocalist Abi Dersiley and producer Matt Canham, deal in the kind of earth-shaking electronic pop that aims straight for your heart. It’s big, bold, and poignant, and on “Jagwa” waves of icy synths rain down on impassioned vocals as part of a powerful one-two punch.

Their new EP, Jagwa, is coming out via Harvest Records in May, and it’s being announced today via the title track and accompanying video. “When we conceived ‘Jagwa’ we imagined it having a very intense, neon-y late night feel to it which the directors captured really well,” Plaitum explains. “Both the song and the video are about an explosive relationship and they explore different areas of that—the video the more carnal side and the song more emotional.”

The duo, who have been friends since childhood, and are now 20, go on to break down the creation process of the whole EP. “Most of the Jagwa EP was written in my bedroom over a weekend,” says Canham. “We took loads of Pro Plus and stayed up for three days writing. The songs got weirder the longer we were awake – at one point Abi just played a really loud droney noise for about half an hour on my microKORG and we both thought it was amazing. I listened back the next day and it was just white noise.”

“The EP gets progressively darker and sludgier,” adds Dersiley. “Unlike our debut EP, which was more or less psycho happy mayhem, we definitely wanted this one to more deliberate, less a frenzied crime of passion and more like a carefully formulated assassination.”

Watch the video above, and look out for the Jagwa EP’s release on May 20.
