Plastic Barricades' Paul Talks of New Music, Creativity and More!

British alternative indie rockers PLASTIC BARRICADES have been inspired and influenced by lots within this century. Drummer Paul Love goes into talks about the band's music creativity, future, and new album due out soon enough!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Plastic Barricades write guitar music and have since long before we met. Dan is a former resident of Estonia and current resident of London. I am a Liverpool national and have been on the run from a council tax bill since 2017. My current whereabouts are Paris.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Practical seabirds and Altaic crispbread with Arctic Bales Parsed

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

If you took it as an average we’d been based somewhere in the Channel (or the sleeve). There are currently no bands in Sealand. I’m a hermit in Paris. I’ve got a terrible phobia of rolled r’s. It’s not helpful here. In London my favorite local bands are The Vone, The Phil Meadows Project, Kokoroko, Leon Rosten Odessey and Phase Theory

4. How would you describe your style?

Brit Pop with a dash of Mars Volta

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Dan released an EP and an Album and then I joined. We’ve just released our first new single called One for the Road and the response has been great. We’ve recorded this whole new album in a 2x3m shed. We wanted to explore what we could do in one space. It’s a magical little place surrounded by foxes and squirrels, snails and hedgehogs.’

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

The new album is currently Self Theories and is not currently out. The next single will be released in Feb and we’re filming the vid soon.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Not right now. It’s just the two of us. We can make it if we try, just the two of us. Him and I, but it will need some planning.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Kick ass and chew bubble gum. We still have gum. I want to write some killer songs that surprise us. I want more friends who thing guitar is cool: enough to sell out Red Rocks.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

We’re on all the online services. You can go to our website for merch and discs!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The way they felt. If that’s there you know it’s a good song. That’s why I’m here, help make songs that move hearts and shake booties.

Plastic Barricades’ new single "One for the Road" out NOW!

"One for the Road" video:

Romantic and honest, gloomy and curious, melodic and melancholic, Plastic Barricades chronicle life in the troubled yet fascinating XXI century, asking questions and trying to find answers. Inspired and influenced by almighty Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Oasis, Coldplay, Muse, Death Cab for Cutie, Placebo, Nirvana and many others, the band loves to experiment with styles, sound and approach.

Based in North-West London, Plastic Barricades are Dan Kert on guitars, keyboards and vocals and Paul Love on drums. Debut album “Mechanics of Life” was released in September 2017 and is available on Spotify.
