Plain Folly Cover Tales Of A Hundred Thoughts

We don’t really move. We run, but without a destination. We are Sisyphus day in and day out: “Still Here” describes the paralysing feeling of trundling through this ridiculously short life without orientation and gradually losing hope of finding the silver lining on the horizon.

Plain Folly knows what it’s like to fight against your own fears, your own demons, your own past, but not to get rid of the feeling that it’s all in vain. That your own goals, visions and dreams will remain unattainable. “You worked so hard to let go of your fear – but still you’re here.” Quicksand thoughts, written during a dark period when Plain Folly couldn’t get off the ground.

“Still Here” is the focus single of Plain Folly’s album “Tales Of A Hundred Thoughts”. It initially focuses on voice and piano – giving the listener goosebumps from the first piano note. The evocative atmosphere of the verses opens up into a big, surging chorus, accentuated by violin and cello, and intensifies until the finale. “A hundred ways but still no road to take – A hundred thoughts but still no words to say”. But Plain Folly knows: at some point, somehow, it always goes on.

Plain Folly is many things. Unadjusted, thoughtful, sometimes dreamy, sometimes eruptive. But above all: DIY as fuck exclusively. Irina Kühn aka Plain Folly writes her own songs, plays almost all instruments herself, even partly produces her own music. Her melancholic pulsating indie prism creates its very own niche between Fiona Apple, Phoebe Bridgers and Florence + the Machine, carried by her versatile voice and her artful piano craft. Thus, her music becomes strikingly deep, a surging ocean of associations and emotions, sometimes beautiful and sometimes threatening. There is light, but not without shadow. There is pain, but not without hope. Sometimes shape-shifting as feather-light, sometimes as driving indie pop with a focus on her powerful voice and her great talent on the black and white keys, sometimes as an eruptive rock catharsis, and sometimes as an urban trip-hop fairy-tale. Her new album, due out in 2023, sets self-doubt and transience to music, boldly facing the storms of life alone despite all their heaviness – a wholesome, musically beguiling act of self-empowerment. Plain Folly: against all odds forevermore. And a fabulously exciting new indie discovery.
