VIDEO: Plastiscines “Barcelona”

Posted June 9th, 2009 by eric · 1 Comment

Despite having knicked their name from a trippy Beatles song, these four French girls have little else in common with the fab four. Plastiscines formed after meeting at a Libertines concert in 2004 and definitely lean towards that rough and tumble side of garage pop, though their sound isn’t so easily pigeonholed. I’m not completely convinced this isn’t some sort of “handled” band because – from the backstory to the image – everything seems questionably and conveniently perfect. But the songs are short and relatively catchy. I’m mostly intrigued by the fact that someone as bizarre as Patrick Wolf has asked these ladies to open up for his tour this summer.

    1.) I heard this in a shop a few weeks ago and was wondering who it was. So, thanks.

    2.) I kinda like it.

    3.) Totally feels manufactured and the fact that they met at a Libertines concert lends a lot to that theory, given the history of the Libertines.
