We’ve done gigs before where we’ve spent the entire gig fee on as much confetti as we could afford and we’ve spent all our money on lasers more times than we can remember.” Plastic Mermaids
“Clad in tinsel capes and firing off sparklers and party poppers in place of pyro, they’re a captivating live act with a knack for a big beat and funky bassline.”– Dork
Following on from their recent ‘1996’ single release, the Isle of Wight’s Plastic Mermaids have just announced a live tour, which will see them play four headline dates, sticking close to their roots along the South Coast, including the Lexington in London on 13th March 2019. Tickets are on sale today Monday 12th November available from (insert link).
Plastic Mermaids have previously sold-out every hometown show on the Isle Of Wight, which included their self-promoted 700 people across 2-nights in a boat shed, simply because there weren’t any venues big enough for them on the island.
The band’s love of The Flaming Lips is evident in their ecstatic live show, which has manifested itself into the sparkly-gold-cape-clad choir that has recently been accompanying Plastic Mermaids recent gigs alongside a mannequin covered in mirror ball tiles who is often suspended above their stage set. Expect to see this and much more in their upcoming 2019 live shows, alongside new tracks from their upcoming debut album to be announced early next year.
The five-piece band recently released their new psychedelic pop single ‘1996’ which was warmly received by fans and critics alike, with Radio 1’s Jack Saunders supporting the record along with BBC6 Music’s Chris Hawkins. You can check out their genius video for ‘1996’ HERE which was entirely directed and produced by the band, featuring a love story between a robot and a human.

More praise for Plastic Mermaids
“Fantastic, ‘I’ve always thought of them as a bit of a British Mercury Rev.. They’ve been away for a while. So good to have them back” JOHN KENNEDY/RADIO X
“This is new now by Plastic Mermaids … That reminds me of something, that chorus line. I can’t think what. A new favourite of mine this one. A gigantic tune. A brilliant brand spanking new one.” CHRIS HAWKINS/6MUSIC – 19/10
“Plastic Mermaids have just shared their new track “1996” and it’s fan-bloody-tastic: vibrant, psychedelic and packed full of dizzying, ingenious touches on the production.” THE INDEPENDENT
“The Isle of Wight band fashion chamber-pop majesty that sounds somehow effortless and preordained.”– SUNDAY TIMES CULTURE
“Some of the most creatively deployed panning heard all year. Cinematic and gorgeously textural, this cut sounds like Mercury Rev going on a road trip with The Flaming Lips.” – Q MAGAZINE
“Plastic Mermaids win me over from the start…the tones are all just right – there’s something very classic about this.”– THE FADER
“Plastic Mermaids combine the sounds of alt-folk, space-rock and chamber pop in a piano-led fantasy that The Flaming Lips would be proud of “ – NME
