Boston's Bulletproof Plan combines the honest delivery of a guitar/bass/drums trio with songs that abandon the commonalities of pop and the narcissism of pure experimental music. The resulting blend of munitions gathered from disparate backgrounds is uniquely theirs-the haunting and the racket.
"Don't Look Up" features five songs inspired by everyday spectacle, myth, and monsters. The depth displayed on their first offering has earned the band a range of critical comparisons, including the commanding melody of Roy Orbison, the deconstructionist pop of Roxy Music, and the weighty indie-rock of Seamonsters-era Wedding Present. Such a broad base has never sounded so cohesive, however, and Bulletproof Plan welcomes you to indulge in their accessible eccentricities.
Bulletproof Plan was formed in 2003 by the husband-wife team of Eric and Molly with Eric's childhood friend and longtime bandmate, Mike. They will independently release "Don't Look Up" in the spring of 2005 and also have two tracks on the 2004 Vinyl Ritchie Records compilation, "Rock or Roll."
Review of "Don't Look Up" from the Noise:
...I'm sure you're hoping that I'll tell you that it's post-modern indy-pop with an industrial twist and a punk ethic, or some BS. None of that matters. Bulletproof Plan have achieved what all bands say they are trying to achieve: a sound of their own. Whatever it is, it's good, which ought to be enough.
