Romantic and honest, gloomy and curious, melodic and melancholic, Plastic Barricades chronicle life in the troubled yet fascinating XXI century, asking questions and trying to find answers. Inspired and influenced by almighty Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Oasis, Coldplay, Muse, Death Cab for Cutie, Placebo, Snow Patrol, The Shins, Nirvana and many others, the band loves to experiment with styles, sound and approach.
Based between London and Paris, Plastic Barricades are Dan Kert on guitars and vocals and Paul Love on drums and production. Together they make unbelievably good music and their news single: Tunnels, is proof of this match made in heaven.
Tunnel is again a masterpiece in the alternative genre. The song tells the story of how it sometimes can feel like life is a road with plenty of tunnels. These tunnels are like the feeling of going into a dark and unknown place, not sure what to expect or how long this darkness is going to last.
The fact of all this, also causes you feeling claustrophobic, and it feels like you cannot reduce speed or turn back from the point you are right now, leaving you with only one decision: Going forward and make the best of it in anyway possible. As long as you keep that thought with you, and the knowledge that not one tunnel is endless, you can surely make it to the other side and see the sun shine again like never before. As long as you keep holding on.
The song was written in a backyard shed studio in London and mixed and mastered by Paul love and Andy Baldwin in the Metropolis Studio’s.
Their new LP is scheduled for the autumn of 2020.
