BOSTON MANOR Live ‘Plasticine Dreams’ in New Single
With whirring guitars and snappy beats that swell into a booming chorus, Plasticine Dreams is another adventurous release from Boston Manor.
Plasticine Dreams offers a change of pace from the previously released singles off their upcoming album, GLUE, further proving the depth of talent and musical stylings that Boston Manor are capable of. Where other singles have felt distinctly modern in their production, their newest track features all the best parts of nostalgic alt-rock with today’s techniques and sound. The chorus is resounding and booming; an infectiously headbanging middle. The message in Plasticine Dreams is a pointed critique of society’s goldfish attention span, making it fit right in with the themes of this album. The accompanying animated video is a surreal trip through a life lived with technology, adding a new level of artistic expression to the track. BM fans should watch closely as the video is laced with Easter eggs representing the band’s history and themes from GLUE.
Speaking about the track, vocalist Henry Cox explained:
‘Plasticine Dreams’ is about the throw away culture of media. How art is treated as “content”; one minute something is plastered everywhere you look and the next it’s faded into obscurity. I also feel like because it’s so easy to go viral now it also encourages people to make ‘content’ rather than art. We’re getting so much information constantly thrown at us that nothing is really absorbed or appreciated, you just click next when it’s finished.
GLUE drops May 1st via Pure Noise Records and Boston Manor will be taking it on the road for a UK headlining tour this August.
