Vocals mesmerizing and gritty, bassline fluid in its gripping delivery, "Life In A Hole" captures us in its honest lyricism and melodies, stringing us along to a neat whirlwind of drum and bass influenced percussions—illuminating the artist's truth.
Hailing from Atlanta and now based in Los Angeles, Unlike Pluto is an emerging force in electronic rock, a space he's carved out for himself, further characterized by his unique songwriting and distinctive voice. The name Unlike Pluto developed from holding onto his outcast persona as he often found himself sticking out in crowds.

Inspired by a range of genres, Unlike Pluto has incorporated these in his releases, building a fan-base thrilled by this diversity.
