Exclusive Premiere: The Fantastic Plastics, ‘NoNoGoGo’
Hailing from Brooklyn, the Fantastic Plastics are gearing up for their brand-new full-length album, Devolver, set for release later this year. A trio comprised of multi-instrumentalist Tyson Plastic, sythn-master Miranda Plastic and drummer Dylan Plastic, the Fantastic Plastics combine elements of alt-, electro- and gritty garage-rock into one unbelievably catchy package. Today (March 24), Diffuser is thrilled to give you a taste of what to expect with Devolver in the form of their new song, "NoNoGoGo" -- stream it in the audio player below.
"If we had only three words to describe the song and our sound, those words would be 'candy coated cyanide," Tyson tells us. "'NoNoGoGo' takes lyrical inspiration from the star-crossed lovers in the novel 1984 by George Orwell. For as long as we've been a band, we've been obsessed with 1984 and its predecessors like We and Necromancer. The worlds those novels create electrify our imagination."
He goes on about the new track, "Filled with Moog heavy synth leads, lo-fi guitar and bass, the song is a bit of a throwback to the early '80s new wave and post-punk music scene. The song is crammed with sugary sweet hooks and harmonies to offset the melancholy lyrics and subject matter. There is definitely a hint of Devo and the Cars sprinkled throughout the tune. We can't help but wear our inspiration on our sleeves."
And we can't help but thank the Fantastic Plastics for doing so. They have a few shows scheduled this spring, including a jaunt to Muchmore's in Brooklyn on April 2; you can stay up-to-date with everything happening in their world at their official website.
