"The new Seattle-born rock group led by local legend Robb Benson released its latest EP, Perspective. With it came the reflective, emotive track, “Darla’s Song.” Check out Benson’s divine singing voice." - American Songwriter
In just over a year PLANETS IN THE OCEAN has surged onto the Seattle music scene, defying their short timeline with a potent mix of experience and innovation. Robb Benson (vocals/guitar), a familiar name from previous bands like Dear John Letters and Stereo Embers, reunited with longtime collaborator Cassady Laton (drums) and Gwon Chang (bass) to create a dynamic power trio. Summer 2022 marked their fresh start, inspired by two decades of Indie rock. Studio engineer Chris Hill beckoned them to Robert Lang Studios, intending to record one song. However, the magic was undeniable, leading to a second track, "Decisions," and Kevin Younkins' expert touch in mixing and mastering. Their live debut in Seattle garnered instant enthusiasm, mirrored in their experimental home recordings, culminating in their debut EP, "Holiday Daydream." Airplay on local radio stations affirmed their arrival. The momentum surged as they returned to Robert Lang Studios with Kevin Younkins, releasing "Perspective," an EP showcasing their boundless creativity. Their swift rise landed them on "Local with Louise," syndicated on five Northwest stations. Recently, PITO had the privilege of recording their latest material with the renowned Jonathan Plum at the iconic London Bridge Studios. This collaboration has added an extra layer of sonic depth to their music, elevating their sound to new heights. These three new songs will be added to the current batch and remastered for a full length vinyl soon!
