Built In Sun is a new project from Joe Plummer, drummer for The Shins, Cold War Kids and Mister Heavenly. For over 10 years, Joe has also played drums and percussion with Modest Mouse and The Black Heart Procession; both touring and recording. Built In Sun was created during touring breaks between The Shins and Cold War Kids releases and features vocals from Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession).
The album began as an instrumental idea, with inspirations landing somewhere between John Cales’ Fear, the punk vibe of the Wipers, John Reese, Ricky Wilson (B52’s), and his favorite soundtrackists John Brion and Clint Mansell.
