Yep, we did not ransack the dictionary, use emo band name generators nor did we crowd source ‘Plok. Infact, Plok is not even a word!
While looking for a name, the foremost criteria we had was that it had to be representative of our music. Of course, our music is SOOO good that we don’t have words for it, hehe. But, we do know that our music is different in its own way and we don’t really try too hard to do something that hasn’t been done before.
Moreover, the basic premise of the band is that stereotyping is forbidden, well almost. Just because something isn’t appreciated, or is appreciated a little too much (psst... Pop Music = taboo), doesn’t mean that we’re going to be closed to it. We like it, we do it. Simple. Which also means that we’re open to trying newer things. Moving along the same thought, we also do not like to confine ourselves to a particular genre. Fine, our sound might appeal to people who listen to Alt/Prog Rock, and we’re happy that it does, but we find the concept of ‘genre’lizing a tad too restrictive.
So we wanted to break this ‘bubble’ and THAT’s the sound of “Plok”.
