The Plastics have just released their brand new album, entitled PYRAMID. The 10 tracks were recorded at Dreamspace Recording Studios in the heart of Woodstock, Cape Town giving it a uniquely Mother City feel – which is probably half the reason Stereo Kids peaked at nr. 8 on the 5FM Top 40 in April this year.
PYRAMID is different from their debut album, SHARK, in that it features far more upbeat, party tunes. It features a variety of party songs – from indie dance tracks to psychedelic 60ʼs pop type songs, to riff rock songs the likes of which they wrote when they ﬁrst started the band.
“Weʼve all expanded our taste in music since Shark, so youʼll hear us exploring different sounds and styles. Itʼs always going to sound like us though, given that itʼs the same 4 members writing the songs together and we have a way of playing together thatʼs always going to make it sound like The Plastics.”
“Pyramid has been a labour of love for us for 2 years and weʼre excited that itʼs getting out into the world now. Besides us being extremely proud of all the songs, the whole package is quite a unique piece of art, given that so many talented designers and artists came together to create such beautiful artwork for each song, which you will see in the booklet. We canʼt wait to tour the country again and play the new songs to all our fans!”
