Planningtorock – Human Drama

14.11.13

Planningtorock is one of the most direct and refreshingly blunt lyricists around right now. Following Welcome, the first teaser of her forthcoming album 'All Love's Legal', PTR (going by the name Jam Rostron right now) has shared lead single Human Drama with the world, and it contains some plain and simple words: "Gimme a human drama / And understand that gender's just a game / Gimme a human drama / all sexuality is not the same".

It's all so wonderfully frank, but for anybody that might be sceptical of music-as-message, allay your fears! Human Drama is just a great song plain and simple, a downtempo synthy tear-jerker that'll wiggle its way into your ears in no time.

We've posted the lyrics to the song here for full perusal:

Been burning up inside day to today
Trying to find the words to explain my sexuality
It's liquid, it's living, a moving love defined by itself
There's no rules, no convention
This love can go where ever it wants

Gimme a human drama
And understand that gender's just a game
Gimme a human drama
All sexuality is not the same
Gimme a human drama 
The personal is so political 
Gimme a human drama
Again, again

Gimme a human drama
We break a box to find a hundred more
Gimme a human drama
There's lots to learn but so much more to unlearn
Gimme a human drama 
The personal is so political 
Gimme a human drama
It kinda feels like genders just a lie
Genders just a lie

Human Level Recordings will release Human Drama on December 9th 2013, featuring remixes by Perera Elsewhere and Paula Temple, followed by new album 'All Love's Legal' on February 10th 2014.
