Pluto make the same sort of dreary pop-indie-rock that New Zealand has been pumping out for years. Nothing fresh or original.

Their first album flopped, and when the second album finally came out, there was a lot spent of marketing, much of it claiming that their first album was "critically acclaimed" but mysteriously didn't sell well to the public. Of course, all this marketing push by their new label did manage to sell a bunch of units of their second album.

But the truth is that the first album didn't sell because Pluto make the same sort of dreary pop-indie-rock that New Zealand has been pumping out for years. The reason the second album sold is because Pluto make the same sort of dreary pop-indie-rock that New Zealand has been pumping out for years - to sell it with the right marketing budget is like dead easy. But IMO you should avoid them like the plague.
