Plastic Mermaids

There's an odd poeticism to the music of Plastic Mermaids.

Sure, they're new - the Isle of Wight group have only a handful of tracks online - yet the band have been able to gently stamp their own identity.

There are those orchestral flourishes for a start, with vocals which reek of Wayne Coyne's psychedelic innocence. Live, Plastic Mermaids have a subtle grandeur, a swirling euphoria which sits somewhere between Animal Collective and Hope Of The States.

It's epic without being overblown, emotionally engaging without being earnest. New EP 'Drømtorp' is out now, with lead cut 'Plastic Mermaids' catching attention.

Little wonder. This live clip demonstrates the blossoming power the band hold, their ability to shatter your heart into tiny pieces blow but devastating blow.

Check it out now.

Plastic Mermaids are set to support Coves next week Thursday (May 1st) at The Lexington, London.
