Plasticine are indie sweet and sour.
An incandescent cacophony of face melting guitars delivered with husky
candy floss vocals all wrapped in a Glasgow attitude. A mind meld of
Smashing Pumpkins with Miley Cyrus and The Pixies with Avril Lavigne turning
out pop hooks over a grungy wall of sound drenched in reverb.
Comprised of frontwoman Summer Skye, brothers Connah and Bob
O’Reilly-Mclean on bass and guitar and drummer Ross Howarth, Plasticine
might only have been together since 2022 but their brief existence belies a
far longer gestation in the mind of their precariously-talented chief songwriter.
“I’ve always been in bands,” explains Summer, for whom music runs in the
family - her mum’s old band were once signed to seminal UK indie label
Cherry Red Records. “I started writing songs when I was about 9 or 10, but it
was never really about wanting to follow my mum, because I was too young
to understand what she did - my dad was probably the bigger influence,
because he was the one who first got me guitar lessons.” Summer spent her
teenage years quietly amassing a catalogue of songs but it wasn’t until she
met Connah and Bob - and later Ross, that she finally struck upon the right
vehicle for them.
After dropping a series of tracks including dirty grunge sing along anthem
‘DO BAD BOYS GOT TO HEAVEN’ followed by the youthful battle cry of ‘Deep
End’ then a heart bleeding ballad ‘On My Own’ Plasticine finished off 2023
with sublime cover ‘Pure Imagination’ and show no sign of slowing down their
sass and swagger with further releases slated for 2024.
