Plastic Picnic
Plastic Picnic is a Brooklyn based band comprised of four Pacific Northwest transplants. The duos – Lute and Panerio, and Hunt and Taylor – developed their styles playing in separate Seattle projects. It wasn’t until moving east that the pairs were brought together by a mutual friend. Instantly compatible, the group shared a taste for lyrically forthright indie rock paired with driving 80's rhythms, sweetly spun melodies and atmospheric synth and guitar work. The four piece teamed up with Producer/Engineer Ted Young (Kurt Vile, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Sonic Youth) to record their upcoming debut release---the first single being "Nausea in Paradise".
Guitarist Matt Richards began sharing acoustic demos of his strummy pop songs to his fellow bandmates and the group began formulating Matt's songs together in his NY basement. Vocalist and keyboardist Maria Garnica brought life to the rough demos with her melody laden hooks and dreamy vocals. Colin O'Neill provided vibrant guitar riffs and Kevin Doxsey was behind the kit and on bass and drummer Brian Alvarez joined later that summer. After self-releasing the songs as digital singles, the band signed to Shelflife Records and will be releasing the material on their debut 7" Jumprope.
