Discovery: Stray Plugz

Stray Plugz are an Australian hip hop collective whose fresh sound caught my attention. Their latest track is called Sustainability Is Important.

By Graeme Smith

Despite its title, the track isn’t really about sustainability. Rather, it’s a long, flowing social commentary delivered by the string of unique voices that make up Stray Plugz. They battle against an oppressive, percussive beat that brings a fresh depth to the hip hop genre. Sustainability Is Important is definitely one of the most stand out pieces of hip hop I’ve heard for a long time.

The quintet that form Stray Plugz came together and accidentally formed a super group. I’m certainly glad they did. You can hear Sustainability Is Important below.
