PLASTIC FRIENDS is an indie-pop alternative band from Bowling Green, Kentucky.
They’ve only been around for a few years. The band formed in 2011. But they didn’t release their debut album until 2016. They spent 5 years playing gigs and honing their sound, perfecting their live shows and defining their style.
During the early stages, they went thru a few band member changes. Their earlier drummer, Jeremy Pryor, died in 2014. He was one of those people who had a profound effect on others. Vocalist, Will Perkins, says:
“Jeremy not only taught me a lot about music, but he taught me how to speak my mind. His legacy will forever live on in our music and in the minds of those who knew him.”
When they were working on their latest album they decided to narrow down the songs and release a shorter EP. The band’s hope is that they will help improve things during what they call “a very dark time”.
“I think it’s more important than ever that we have watchdogs to hold those in power accountable for their actions. As corruption runs rampant, we need a lookout to help hold up the lowest levels of our society, which are the ones who are suffering the most…Just go about your day and stare at a mirror instead of a microscope…I encourage you to think for yourself and love thy neighbor.”
This track is on their ‘The Lookout’ EP and it is available for download now.
