Brilliant New Plastic Mermaids Video
We’ve been banging on about how fantastic Plastic Mermaids are to any poor unfortunate unlucky enough to stand still for longer than a minute next to us. The Island 5-piece dropped the collective Headfunk jaws when they played a live radio session for us early in 2013, managing to semi-acoustically reproduce to brilliant effect two of their woozy, epic tracks. They have recently signed to Cross Key Records , one-time home of local favourites The Shutes, and their debut EP ‘Drømtorp’ is out at the end of March. If that seems too long to wait then you can feast your ears and your eyes on their brand new video for the single ‘Polaroids’.
This track will be familiar to anyone who had been to a Plastic Mermaids gig recently or to regular Headfunk Show listeners as an early live version of ‘Polaroids’ got heavy rotation on the show last year as well as making it into our 40 of 2013. The band are playing live at Quay Arts Centre on Saturday 1st March with a host of guest musicians joining them for what promises to be a memorable show. There were a very small number of tickets left for the gig yesterday so don’t hang about.
