This weekend Cape Town band THE PLASTICS will depart for their Roller Coastal Tour. With performances in J-Bay and East London, they are excited to return to the coast and play for fans who don’t get to see them so often.

“This tour is breaking new ground for us as we’ve never been to East London before. It’s our third trip up to J-Bay and we’ve always had a great time so we are looking forward to the two shows there, especially amongst the buzz of the surfing competition.”

The music video for THE PLASTICS’ latest single, Stereo Kids, is this week nr. 1 on MK’s Top 10 Music Videos Chart for the second week in a row.

“It’s great that our video has been recognised as such and the credit needs to go to the people that made it possible – director Rob Smith and his team. We’re a band that is really into making interesting music videos and his concept and execution of it fits into that standard. We also really appreciate all the support from MK – we are really excited that the single and video has been doing so well!”

THE PLASTICS are currently in studio putting the finishing touches on their second album, set for release around October this year.

“Excitement would be an understatement to how we’re feeling about it. It’s been over a year in the making and we’ve gone through loads of song ideas to arrive at the ones we feel are best suited to this album.

Recording has taken place at Dreamspace Studios with our good friend Shai Hirschson producing. He’s brought a lot of energy to the process and he has slightly different tastes in music to us in general, which has brought a new side to the way we sound in studio.

While not explicitly a classic rock throwback album, we’ve incorporated a lot of 60’s pop ideas into it, while the production values bring it into modern times.”
