Melbourne-based avant-pop quintet, Dear Plastic is a group of visual artists, science enthusiasts and one comic book nerd, whose music can be described as apocalyptic trip-hop.
The unconventional baroque-pop act is set to release their second EP Heaven Machine, with ‘Zero’ being the debut single off the record. Recorded by Neil Thomason (My Disco, Augie March & Jen Cloher) and Mastered by Adam Dempsey (Courtney Barnett, Tora & Thelma Plum) ‘Zero’ “is a cosmic hymn from a nihilist church,” says vocalist Scarlette Baccini. The track demonstrates the band’s artistic sensibility with its dark vintage synth sounds, pulsing beat and Baccini’s strong poetic vocals that capture the listener.
In support of the new single Dear Plastic will be performing at Melbourne’s Shadow Electric on March 5th with support from Lisa Salvo + Mondogreen
