Video premiere: Plastic take us on a warped aural excursion with ‘Spider Fingers’

The guitar-noise-pop quintet have unveiled a special live version of their new single.

Off the back of their recent single ‘Baby Steps’, Melbourne-based five-piece Plastic have returned with another new track, ‘Spider Fingers’. The single marks the second glimpse of their long-awaited debut album New Hands, due for release via Spoilsport Records on Tuesday September 29.

The single displays the band’s signature brand of guitar-noise-pop, melding an intriguing tangle of guitar melodies and a punchy rhythm before unravelling into a hypnotizing sonic trip laden with buzzing riffs and restless energy.

To accompany the release of ‘Spider Fingers’, Plastic have also dropped a film clip featuring a live version of the single recorded in their home studio.

Recorded between lockdowns at Collingwood’s VCS Studio, the film clip is a no-frills affair that puts the music front and centre.

Known for their dynamic live performances, the film clip makes up for the current lack of gigs by demonstrating Plastic’s mesmeric talent as performers. Cohesive yet fluid, the live rendition of ‘Spider Fingers’ feels like a jam session in which the players seamlessly bounce off each other.

Check out the film clip for ‘Spider Fingers’ below. 

‘Spider Fingers’ is out on September 8 via Spoilsport Records. For more from Plastic, check out their Bandcamp or Facebook
