SINGLE PREMIERE: POLYPLASTIC “NEXT SLIDE”
L.A.’s Polyplastic is Charlie Ellis and Emily Ibarra (with drummer Casey Baird and guitarist Dylan Bostick) and they have a tour and an EP coming this summer. But right now they’ve got a new single with two tracks of dark and dramatic Bryan Ferry-goes-Factory Records-style post-punk. (You could dance to it, or you could just … soak.) “Next Slide” will also be on their Not No EP coming June 29—keep an eye out for it here—and Polyplastic co-founder Ellis explains why it feels so desolate: “I used to travel a lot for work and we would stay in AirBnBs around the US. Usually we would be put up in these large suburban homes, giving us a weird insight into the homeowners lives without ever meeting them in person. ‘Next Slide’ is about running away from home by taking up personalities of other people, living their lives for a week and then moving on.” Visit Polyplastic here!
