Plastic Animals - Automation EP
Sprawling, atmospheric noise-rock is the order of the day for Edinburgh based quartet Plastic Animals. On their latest E.P, "Automation", the tempo rarely exceeds the rate of a human heartbeat, yet still manages to pack quite a punch. Whether it's the end-of-the-night haze of "Sundowning", the slow-building menace of "Yellowcraig", or the slightly more straightforward, Cure-like charm of "Ghosts", the E.P is a good showcase for a band who have taken influences from the creme-de-la-creme of alt-rock, and refashioned it through their own particular lens.
"Automation E.P" will be released in September on Strange Fish Records.
