We’re incredibly excited to be welcoming Plastic Mermaids to Future Yard in November. The five-piece band from the Isle of Wight have developed into one of the most genuinely original and sonically adventurous collectives in the country. The group have announced a new album, It’s Not Comfortable To Grow, which will be released later this year. With their most raw and heartfelt lyrics to date filtered through the constantly shifting kaleidoscope of their music, it is the sonic adventure you’ve come to expect from an uncategorisable band but with a new emotional heft – a tale of hitting rock bottom and coming up again.
Tickets on sale Wednesday 23rd March at 10am.
They’re surfers, they build their own effects pedals and they once sketched out the designs for a synthesiser played entirely by pigeons – but on their second full-length album, the endlessly inventive Isle Of Wight five-piece Plastic Mermaids are facing their dark side.
At the heart of Plastic Mermaids is the creative force of two brothers, Douglas and Jamie Richards, sons of a Gurnard boat-builder, who approach life like an art project, putting as much love into their band’s visual concepts and staging as they have into their unique brand of psych-rock and electronica.
