Plain Folly is the musical project of Irina Kühn, musician, singer and songwriter from Stuttgart (Germany). Not only is she the voice, heart and head of Plain Folly – she writes, composes and arranges all songs herself. Concerning the professional production of her 4-track EP „Fortuities“, she teamed up with producer Tom Schenk (Mini Moustache, Gravity Saints, Eyes of Solace, Stone the Crow). Whereas, on the record, Irina plays all instruments herself, including guitars, piano, electric bass and bass synthesizer, upcoming german drummer Moritz Müller (The Intersphere) was responsible for the beat.
You are a melody in my head. („Afterglow“)
Regarding live gigs, Irina (vocals, guitar & piano) is supported by three musicians from Stuttgart: Andy Newman on guitar, Ramona Gmelin on drums and Christian Mejia on keyboards. Together, they create the unique sound of Plain Folly and complete the musical vision.
I’m not easily impressed, but I tend to get obsessed. („Sold Out“)
Plain Folly mixes the energy, atmosphere and sound of bands like Mutemath, Dredg and The Intersphere with a female voice that reminds you of Paramore, Alanis Morissette or Tori Amos, adding some brand-new and unexpected components.
