A Deli Premiere: Plastic Waves share single “Drift” + play Elsewhere on 8/3

After making the move to Brooklyn, former Deli New England-featured artist of the month Plastic Waves premieres brand new single “Drift” here today. Relying purely on electronic instruments, the track features verses supported by modulating synths and slap-back percussion. While an initial impression might elicit comparisons to the 80's and 90's sound of bands like Depeche Mode, OMD or even Gary Numan, a more soulful and emotional quality emerges within the bridge and chorus. “I don't want to fight it, but don't get excited if you feel it too” leads into a lush cascade of melding voices and synths. The chorus takes it one step further with buzzing, elevating melody lines between the vocal refrain “can't seem to find another - cause I won't take any others - you pull me right back into it - and I don't know how you do it.” Don't miss Plastic Waves' live performance at Elsewhere Zone One in Brooklyn this Friday, 8/3. - Dave Cromwell
