Graffiti Vibe Recommends 'Pop Trash Inc.'
‘GET BEHIND THE MASK’
Best described as the dirty love child of Garbage, Daft Punk and Darth Vader Pop Trash Inc. are a dynamic four-piece that have been forging a unique path through the music scene. Hailing from The Netherlands, this mysterious band write, produce and record their own music, backing it with original artwork and visuals to create an uncompromising assault on the sense.
With their striking sci-fi looks and trashy guitar infused Euro synth-pop Pop Trash Inc. reminds of bands like Daft Punk and Garbage.
The band started in 2014. Fueled by a mutual interest in 80’s and 90’s music, they began recording original material. ‘It became clear right away that we had something worthwhile’ says the band. ‘The four of us just clicked and we knew the time was right to bring back that classic sound injected with modern day production”.
The band have recently released their five-track debut EP ‘1.0’ that brings together new edits of previous singles along with two dynamic new cuts. ‘1.0’ is a combination of Pop, Funk, Rock and 80’s Synth Pop with retro and futuristic vibes and is available on all digital streaming platforms and as cddigipack.
“Pop Trash Inc. truly have a unique yet familiar EP on their hands with ‘1.0’, a journey definitely worth the listen.” - November 2019, MYRIAD MUZIK
“The EP hits with controlled intensity, building into sci-fi cacophony of digital beats, sonic vocals and driven guitar chords”
“A unique release that follows in the footsteps of ‘space-rock’ pioneers that will undoubtedly turn heads”
Score 7.5/10 – November 2019, Broken8 Records
Curious as what are the names and faces of those behind Pop Trash Inc. the band stated in a 2019 local radio interview: “the total image is more important than the individual members” and “by investing in visual appearance Pop Trash Inc. succeeds to differentiate from other bands and stay in the public’s minds”.
it's worth noting that ‘Inc.’ in Pop Trash Inc. stands for ‘incognito’ and refers to the fact the band have chosen to remain anonymous, Pop Trash is also a reference to the nature of modern day music consumption and the ‘swipe left’ culture.
It is no co-incidence that the band reminds of characters of a Star Wars movie. They sure know their classics. The first single ‘Vertigo City’ was inspired by the 1982 cult movie ‘Blade Runner’. The title of their second release ‘Can’t go back to yesterday’ is a phrase from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and the video of ‘SITA’ is a new take on the 80’s cult teen movie ‘Weird Science’.
