The infectious new single ‘Going Away’
“Plastic Glass are seriously ones to watch.” – Independent Music News
“It really won’t be long until they’re being hyped by all of the tastemakers.” – It’s All Indie
“The obscene amount of talent that comes from Plastic Glass is eyewatering.” – It’s Indie and We Know It
After receiving support on their previous releases from the likes of Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music), Clint Boon (XS Manchester) and BBC Introducing, Plastic Glass are ready to propel their brand of infectious guitar music to the masses.
Gaining great attention on the live scene the band have played sold out headline shows at venues such as Think Tank (Newcastle) and Independent (Sunderland) as well as supporting hot indie outfits The Snuts, The K’s and The Pale White. Now working with nationally acclaimed promoters Scruff Of The Neck and This Feeling, the Sunderland 4 piece are travelling further afield, having already played shows in Leeds, Glasgow, Carlisle and Manchester this year before being cut short.
The riff-heavy new single, released on Friday 6th November, is filled with intricate lyrics, big guitar lines and an indie sound that you can’t stop listening too. When asked specifically about the track, bassist Ben Richardson explained: “This song is technically a reincarnation of an old Plastic Glass track that I actually wrote the lyrics for, admittedly it wasn’t great. However, some of the ideas from that track certainly carried over into this final version that we’re now releasing.”
Lyricist and guitarist Dylan Abbott goes on to discuss the themes of this track: “Inspired by leaving home to go to university, lyrically this single covers the topics of boredom and wanting a change of scene. Specifically, tired of being stuck living at home and constantly relying on the same set of people.”
