Plastic Mermaids are a 5 piece band from the Isle of Wight who have spent most of the last year hidden away in their home studio constructing a unique style of folkedelic dream pop, escaping only for the occasional surf.
Weaving together vocal harmonies and a diverse selection of instruments they create folky melodies with experimental electronic textures, that occasionally build to an epic cinematic crescendo or just as likely drift away into the soundscape.
“Plastic Mermaids win us over from the start. The tones are just all right.” The Fader
“A chiming, atmospheric beast. It’s very exciting to hear a group pushing such simple ideas so effectively.” DIY magazine
