Plain Speak is Dan Pechacek and Ben See. The two met in high school by seeing each other’s MySpace music pages that were equally sweet and embarrassing, and deciding to collaborate. From then on they have worked together in one form or another. The music they have made over the years has ranged from folk pop to twinkling indie rock. This year Plain Speak released a tape single as part of the OBNEAC Tape Club. The two songs on the single signal the shift of the band from sweet bedroom love songs to songs with more grit exploring existential wonder and the realities of navigating adulthood. The band is currently working on a second tape single for release in early 2017 and have plans for an EP in the summer of 2017.
