Nightmares is the debut release from noise-pop outfit, Plastic. Recorded over three days at an Avery in Abbotsford, Melbourne, the EP is the five piece’s first foray into a recorded output.
Beginning with intimate Nothing At All and ending on the expansive Nightmares, the EP is both near and far, close and distant. The four tracks feature impeccable dreamy production in an enveloping wall of sound. A plethora of shimmering synth from Lewis, carefully picked guitar riffs from Adam and Louis help weave it together, edged on by drummer Ryan’s bursts. But it’s frontman Louis McDonald’s soulful voice and (Silver Scroll nominated) introspective lyrics that really guide you through.
