There’s vulnerability in acoustic settings you can’t get anywhere else. Van Plating peels back the layers of her song “Bird on a Wire” for a jagged, unfiltered performance, her voice managing to burn hotter than before.
“Oh my love, let it go,” she warbles. Acoustic guitar trembles nervously around her, an unsteady adornment that shakes as a sewing machine does as one’s hand guides a piece of fabric. Here, Plating proves exactly why we need to talk about her much more than we are.
