Plastic Pinks formed in Jan of 2013 and have kept the integrity of their energetic sound throughout the years, even after going through some line up changes. Known for their charismatic performances, energetic music and their commitment to their craft, they have toured over the years and don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. They once shared the road with AJ Davila (Terror Amor / Davila 666) which helped pave the way for future tours where they promoted their various releases. Among those releases they had many breakthrough moments, like having their 7”inch record released by the Atlanta label, Die Slaughterhaus Records, in which the songs “Fui” and “Kelly” gained them momentum and inspired a craving to push harder than before. Later on, they released their digital / cassette EP, “Livin’ On the coast”, via Wiener Records. This particular EP propelled the band further which helped as a stepping stone towards to their later released album “Sunnyside Rabbits” (recorded/produced by AJ Davila) with Burger Records. During the Sunnyside Rabbits three month tour the band was featured on Daytrotter, as wells as a KEXP live session, which added more wind to their sails.
After playing various high profile shows like III POINTS festival, SXSW, Burgermania, Atlanta Mess-Around as well as having played with the likes of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Warpaint, King Krule, Run The Jewels, RJD2, Ty Segall, Black Lips, Shannon and The Clams, The Spits, Thee Oh Sees, Hinds, La Luz, The Coathangers, Wand, Natural Child, DIIV, Neon Indian, Surfer Blood, Jacuzzi Boys, Kim and The Created, Jaill, Destruction Unit, The Garden, Iceage, Night Beats among the list, you can only ask yourself; What’s next for Plastic Pinks?
For their fourth release they will unleash “El Animal”, a six-song EP under the Ghost Drag Records banner. Plastic Pinks have taken their time to work on this upcoming release by exploring a broader sound and a less constrictive approach. For that they enlisted the help of Gordon Raphael (producer of “The Modern Age”, “Is this it” and “Room On Fire” by The Strokes) to do the EP’s mixing, as well as their upcoming album’s, as a way to capture a new era of Plastic Pinks. They are also working on their following album tentatively named “Don’t Forget The Mischief” with the help of their friend Robert Peters (Fuzz Baby Records) who recorded and co-produced “El Animal” to have it be released later on 2017.
We are the stools. We are from detroit. We borrow instruments and play loud punk/garage/ballads on them for you.
