Music: The Plastics

Cape Town

For their second album, indie rock band The Plastics take their bristling Brit-pop anthems and melodic rock balladry into (relatively) deep and dark territory.

Sure, there are plenty of stadium-sized songs on Pyramid, but there’s a new psychedelic wooze and some dirty fuzz to their familiar molten riffs, shimmery guitar lines and affecting croon. The result exposes the growing sense of urban ennui and dislocation that is affecting a generation of young white South Africans. Don’t be late for the Cape Town launch of Pyramid or you’ll miss support sets by Beach Party, Al Bairre, DJ’s Sideshow and MudBlud.
