“War Song” is the dynamic double single from metaltronica project, PLANEPACKED. Officially releasing on the 28th of January 2022 with a B-side instrumental version, the track is now available to stream exclusively at V13.
PLANEPACKED mastermind Jessica Kagen comments:
“‘War Song’ was written as I learned how to sing, early in the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s an ode to trans joy and pride, and the LGBTQ+ community’s long struggle against prejudice. This single is also a proving ground for musical ideas I plan to explore in future Planepacked albums.”

PLANEPACKED draws musical influences from the likes of AUTECHRE, IGORRR, DEVIN TOWNSEND, and SUSUMU HIRASAWA, and is also inspired in various ways by Jessica’s urban fantasy fiction series, Endian Project. The new single releases ahead of the band’s sophomore album Transactinides, landing on the 8th April 2022, although this track will not be included on the record. PLANEPACKED opens the threshold to a universe of soundscapes, melodies and explorations of the human existence.
