People in Planes - As Far As the Eye Can See Review
by Zane Ewton
People in Planes has been generating the same kind of buzz every other band from England has in the last 15 years. A self-titled EP and a few well placed shows created a bidding war among indie labels, leading to the release of their full length debut, As Far As the Eye Can See, and landing the fake man in black, Joaquin Phoenix, as director of their first music video.
People in Planes is a prototypical indie rock band, for the most part; they are able to throw in some fuzzed, catchy riffs and soaring choruses. The pop sensibilities clash with the offbeat to create a strange, yet completely familiar and satisfying album.
As Far As the Eye Can See is the perfect album for those people who think Radiohead are out to lunch, but they would also like to punch Chris Martin of Coldplay in the face. You'll be pleasantly surprised to find a band that actually deserves what little buzz they have, if not deserving of more.
