mister_leo_z One of the best debuts of 2019. A really beautiful and thoroughly made album with a little experimental edge to it. Sounds kinda as if Dirty Projectors would remake Foster the People's Supermodel. Also one of the greatest covers I've ever seen. Favorite track: Floating in a Vacuum.

Daisy K I still cannot possibly forget the massively captivating 60 minutes when I saw Plastic Mermaids live for the first time in a random London brewery in October 2016, without single info on them or their music. Hopefully they will play in Korea too someday, and when they do, I will be at the very front row for sureee! Favorite track: Yoyo.

Actual Garbage 1996 is one of the best tracks of the year. Cheesy lyrics throughout but a nice listen. Favorite track: 1996.

about

Plastic Mermaids are a five-piece band from the Isle of Wight who, after building their own analogue studio, have self-produced one of the most genuinely original and sonically adventurous debut albums you’ll hear all year: Suddenly Everyone Explodes.

They are brothers Jamie and Douglas Richards, who collaborate on vocals, synths and samples, along with guitarist Chris Newnham, bassist Tom Farren and drummer Chris Jones. Born out of the ashes of previous bands Magic Octagon and Neon Fetus, Plastic Mermaids are not a band who have ever wanted for ambition.

In terms of musical influences, fans of The Flaming Lips, Arcade Fire, Sparklehorse and Tame Impala will all find something to love in Plastic Mermaids’ richly-textured sound. The Flaming Lips’ influence is also evident in their ecstatic live show.

More than just a record, they have created their own very idiosyncratic world. On Suddenly Everyone Explodes, you can explore it for yourself.

Track Name: I Still Like Kelis
The game of cards you play my dear is half of the thing I feared 

I loaned it all to you

Cut the top half off my head and look at the soup you made

I kept it warm for you

It's ok I know that we’ve both buttoned the wrong holes 

You’re on the west coast while I’m on the east.

I heard you got into hip-hop 

I still like Kelis

It’s been a long, long time, 

I hope you know I’m still here

I know that we’ve lost touch,

can’t we get high like last year.

Warmed up like yesterday’s kebab in the microwave 

Is how I feel for you

But in a microscopic way, we’re tangled up eternally

I’ll spin the same as you

Please wait a minute while I dislocate my point of view.

You’ve lost the plot I’ve heard 
but I’m sure there’s a better word for, 

doing everything just how you want to.

It’s been a long, long time, 

I hope you know I’m still here

I know that we’ve lost touch,

can’t we get high like last year.
It’s been a long, long time,
