Pluto Revolts

Pluto Revolts




Characterized as "refreshing" and "one of the most dedicated artists in Cincinnati" (, this band is the definition of "rebirth," as singer Benjamin James describes the meaning behind the name parallels its origins in the wake of a group that once reached the majors, before succumbing to "Almost Famous"-types of stereotypical misfortune and label turmoil. From Citybeat Magazine (Sept 2016), the style of Pluto Revolts can be described as combining "Alternative Rock attitude with Electronic experimentation for a familiar, yet fresh sound. James' yearning vocals are powerful, at times stadium-Rock strong and other times Pop-ballad sweet...which play well with the energetic guitar, crashing drums and playful keys."

The new EP "Tidal Wave" (released 12/09/16) contains "deftly designed structures and striking melodic magnetism" and "a sound as accomplished, passionate and effectual as any Indie/Electro/Pop act on the market" (Mike Breen, Citybeat Dec 2016). The new EP demonstrates the band's capacity to thrive on reinvention musically, but lyrically as well, as themes of starting over, following instincts, and facing fears head-on are front and center.  According to singer James, this record is "the first group of songs that feels like we cast a line out to where we want to go, not just paying homage to where we've been" (CincyMusic Interview 2016).
