Below is a commentary by the label.

"With Into Closed Air, Francis Plagne returns to the songcraft that has been the bedrock of his music since his 2006 debut, Idle Bones. Since then, Francis Plagne's music has become a kind of... He has oscillated between exploring art song and homemade musique concrète, but to consider these as separate practices is to underestimate Francis Plagne's ability to overlap and fuse these two areas of music-making. This ability reaches its deepest expression to date in Into Closed Air.

Nine albums on labels such as Black Truffle, Penultimate Press, and Horn Of Plenty, as well as simultaneous collaborations with Andrew Chalk, Crys Cole, James Rushford, Joe Talia ('Food Court'), and Julian Williams ('The Inevitable Orbit'). For those who have followed Plagne's music over the past 9 years, this won't necessarily come as a huge surprise.What's remarkable about Into Closed Air, however, is its dual nature of summation and variation, the way it connects the music Francis Plagne has already made and suggests a new path forward.

``Into Closed Air'' is Francis Plagne's most fluent work, never forgetting the joy of the moment. "

Text excerpt by Jon Dale via the label:

"With Into Closed Air, Francis Plagne returns to the songcraft that's been the bedrock of his music since his debut, 2006's Idle Bones. Since then, Plagne's music has see-sawed between a particular, parsed kind of art song and explorations of home- made musique concrete - though to see these as distinct practices understates Plagne's capacity to layer and fuse these two tranches of his music making. This capacity has reached its deepest articulation yet on Into Closed Air.

For those who've been following Plagne's music over the past two decades, through nine albums on labels like Black Truffle, Penultimate Press and Horn Of Plenty, or on his concurrent collaborations with Andrew Chalk, crys cole, James Rushford and Joe Talia (in Food Court), and Julian Williams (in The Inevitable Orbit), this won't necessarily be a huge surprise. What is remarkable about Into Closed Air, however, is its duality of summation and variation, the way it ties a bow around the music Plagne has already made and suggests new ways forward[...]

[...] Framed by the always careful, considered lyric writing that Plagne brings to his songs, an Ashbery-esque quasi-abstraction that sketches around the contours of story and image, Into Closed Air is Plagne working at his most fluent, while never forgetting the joy of the moment."
