Virginia Plain

Virginia Plain

Virginia Plain is the new pop project by Alfra Martini, Justin Miller, Christian Reinhardsen, and Robert Boston, a group that incorporates cabaret inspired vocals, cyber punk style synth-scapes and electronic percussion into a classic pop template.  Conceived as an outlet for the music Martini began writing after her last project Prudence Teacup went on hiatus, Martini recruited members of the ambient improv group Fono Luxe as collaborators to expand on her newfound sound.  Mining similar territory as OMD, The Eurythmics and late period Roxy Music, Virginia Plain creates mood music for slow dances and futuristic night clubs.

In 2012 the band released their debut single Electric Eyesa double A side 7″ featuring two slices of their unique take on glam inflected pop music.  Some folks at WFMU caught their performance at CMJ and instantly proclaimed them as one of the best new acts of the year.

2013 will see the release of their debut album Strange Game on All Hands Electric.
