If you enjoy punchy two-and-a-half minute grunge tracks with catchy riffs and dirty themes, read on...
Drowned In You is the latest single from alternative quartet, PLASTIC. The self-proclaimed, dad-rock lovers released the banger through Backpack Records as a small teaser of what to expect on their debut album.
Fuzzy, static guitars with a pulsating drum beat, teamed with lethargic vocals and simple, repetitive lyrics, makes Drowned In You an insatiable ode to nineties grunge. The swaying lyrical melody is memorable when partnered with the dirty guitar tones that PLASTIC take pride in.
Squealing solos and a melodramatic, drawn out finish make it a scuzzy rock song that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The magical mixing fingers of Sam Bloor at Lower Lane Studios can definitely be detected in the crisp, clean authenticity of the recording.
With hopes to record their debut album in January with the trusted Mr. Bloor, PLASTIC are destined to produce a catalogue of grizzly grunge tracks that will infatuate nineties kids everywhere.
I also have to applaud Sam Ikin for the insane accompanying artwork.
You can catch PLASTIC live in Manchester when they perform with Sonic A.M., The Kings Pistol and Epitaph Committee on the 25th November at the Fuel Cafe.
