Sounds Like A Plan

A new podcast has launched looking at efforts to make the music industry more environmentally sustainable. ‘Sounds Like A Plan’ is hosted by Savages drummer Fay Milton and music journalist Greg Cochrane.

Episode one sees Milton discuss the Music Declares Emergency project that she co-founded. Upcoming interviewees including Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, Festival Republic’s Melvin Benn, and manager of The 1975 Jamie Oborne. All will discuss their efforts to improve their respective businesses’ climate credentials.

“The action taking place across the music universe is inspiring, energising and, above all, urgently needed right now”, says Cochrane. “We know about Billie Eilish and Coldplay, but it’s not just those in front of the microphone creating positive change. ‘Sounds Like A Plan’ is a place for people throughout the music community to share their passion for climate action and how they’re harnessing the transformative power of music culture”.

Milton adds: “The world is aware and anxious about the climate and the ecological destruction that we are experiencing. There are so many great initiatives going on throughout music that are bringing positive change in this space. Now it’s time to get the conversation going and get together to tell those in power that we need urgent action. Anything I can do to add my voice to that I will. It’s been so inspiring to connect with our amazing guests and hear about all of the initiatives that are taking place”.

Episode one is available now through all good podcast providers.
