The Scoop: South African indie rock quartet The Plastics have released their new single “All I Really Want”.
The Spin: The song was premiered on Indie Shuffle last night and was quickly met with positive fan reactions. The song sees the band dabbling in a familiar sound for fans of the Arctic Monkeys. Psych rock influences cling to the petticoats of dark and sultry indie rock. Synthesizers, falsetto vocals and atmospheric break-downs creep onto the song to quickly establish it as a departure from their previous sounds, but does maintain that playful and upbeat quality that has gained The Plastics a cult-like following. It is also the exact same qualities that got them shipped off to Europe to perform at the Nouvelle Prague 2014 Showcase last week and are currently touring Europe.
The song is released on the tail-end of the success that their previous two albums Sharks and Pyramids has bought them, and just in time to serve as the perfect way to generate hype for their forthcoming EP to be released in 2015.
