A Barcelona-based recording artist and producer, Plastic Teardrops has made a name for himself by fusing trip-hop with down-tempo acoustics and authentic, modern blues. It’s a sound that resonates with a flexible, transient vibe that flows with ethereal grace and leaves a lasting mark, encapsulating his passion and innovation in perfect form.
Taking lead from the likes of Massive Attack and Portishead, Plastic Teardrops is an outlet through which real, unique sounds can triumph over the capitalism of the music industry. After making a splash with his lead single, ‘Falling Together’, Plastic Teardrops is now set to release his debut album, ‘Close To The Ground’. A ten track release that cuts across several trends of life, the album is as much about it’s composition and production as it is the artist’s message.
Led by previous single ‘Falling Together’, Plastic Teardrops’ debut album is an immersive aural experience that builds with each track, mixing deep acoustic rumblings with subtle flourishes of electronic melody and smooth, sweeping vocals. It’s an album the tracks a steady line, offering a unified vision and a consistent path rather than an arching, rolling journey, and while some songs stand above others, ‘Close To The Ground’ ultimately stands firm to its name. Songs like ‘Save The World’ and ‘Wont Give Up’ are perfect examples of Plastic Teardrop’s craft, fusing elements of hip-hop and electronica into genre that is refreshing, entrancing, and wonderfully universal.
Set for release on the 1st of January 2019, ‘Close To The Ground’ can be pre-ordered from Plastic Teardrop’s official BandCamp page here, or streamed in full above on SoundCloud.
