PLASTIC TONES: “Mystery Machine” b/w “Whirlwind”: 7”

This is a double A-side single. Proclaiming that both sides of a record are so good that neither could possibly be relegated to B-side status is pretty bold, but after a bunch of listens I have to agree that the two tracks here are both worthy of A-side status. Bright, catchy power pop is the name of the game. Lyrically, the songs are smart and romantic, and perfect for daydreaming about love, both lost and found. Excited to hear more from this band. –Emma Alice Johnson (Lempi & Sylvi / Svart, [email protected], therealplastictones.bandcamp.com)
