A Deli Premiere: Plastic Waves share single “Drift” + play Elsewhere on 8/3

After making the move to Brooklyn, former Deli New England-featured artist of the month Plastic Waves premieres brand new single “Drift” here today. Relying purely on electronic instruments, the track features verses supported by modulating synths and slap-back percussion. While an initial impression might elicit comparisons to the 80's and 90's sound of bands like Depeche Mode, OMD or even Gary Numan, a more soulful and emotional quality emerges within the bridge and chorus. “I don't want to fight it, but don't get excited if you feel it too” leads into a lush cascade of melding voices and synths. The chorus takes it one step further with buzzing, elevating melody lines between the vocal refrain “can't seem to find another - cause I won't take any others - you pull me right back into it - and I don't know how you do it.” Don't miss Plastic Waves' live performance at Elsewhere Zone One in Brooklyn this Friday, 8/3. - Dave Cromwell





Boston's psych rock Plastic Waves to play Great Scott on 4.13

I don’t know if you’ve ever watched plastic melt, but there is something so beautiful and mesmerizing in the way it disintegrates. The way it moves and folds into itself. Listening to Boston’s psychedelic outfit Plastic Wave is much like that. Solo project of Andre Bellido, Plastic Waves weaves together fuzzy vocals over snarling reverb laden guitars and oscillating synths as a thick base rhythmically pulsates in the background, creating a rich aural texture. Their self-titled debut EP starts off gently, with delicate synths in “Intro” before climaxing into an eruption of kaleidoscopic proportions on “Pushing Me Down” and then easing into a dizzying electric comedown with “Melancholy Sleep.” Take a listen below and don't forget to catch Plastic Waves entrancing sound at Great Scott on April 13. - Adriana S Ballester
