The Fantastic Plastics are an otherworldly retrofuturistic band based in Brooklyn, NY who have been making the rounds of NYC and the northeast for almost three years now. Their sound is based in retrofuturism, and yes, that is a real thing… according to Wikipedia anyway, where it is defined as a blend of old-fashioned “retro” styles with futuristic technology. Get a taste for their sound below.
Altercation Records co-owner Travis Myers had this to say about the signing:
“The Fantastic Plastics are different and refreshing, but also have something very comforting and familiar about their sound that I think people will find very appealing…and as with all Altercation bands they are undeniably good at what they do. I don’t know anything about this retro-future stuff, but I know a good thing when I see it, and The Fantastic Plastics are definitely a good thing, and we’re happy and proud to be adding them to the Altercation family”
We can expect to see the band’s first full length entitled Devolver, sometime in September but according to Myers there will be numerous video releases and some free stream teasers starting in August to whet our appetites for the Future Wave that is to come, so stay tuned.
