Review: 'Hot Plastic'
'Keep Up'   

-  Genre: 'Indie'

Our Rating:
I receive what I can only describe as a monstrous and utterly overwhelming fuckload of direct messages via all of my various social media channels from bands and artists looking for a review. I don’t blame them: I’ve been doing this for a long time and for a number of publications. Guilt-making as it is, I don’t even read half of said messages, because they’re simply too numerous. I’m glad I opened the one from Hot Plastic, though.

Fronted by Nic Dinnie, formerly of the South African indie group Desmond and the Tutus, the Jersey (that’s the island in the Channel Islands, home of The Gaa Gaas, not the city in New Jersey in the US), the trio describe their debut single as ‘a statement of intent’. And what a statement! It’s a blast of fuzzy, raw post-punk-infused indie with a choppy guitar and some crisp drumming, and all delivered at breakneck speed. It’s brashy, trashy, and a real rush.

If ‘Keep Up’ is in any way representative of what’s in the pipeline, there’s lot to get excited about.
