Plastique formed in 2010 and having released two albums, the band wanted to change things up a bit but found themselves stuck with nowhere to go, so they took a hiatus. And even though this is my fast experience of the in your face punch to the groin sound all I can say is that it was certainly worth it. This fast paced electro mash hits you right where it needs to, with a mix of dance and heavy rock. With grimy beats, white noise fuzz and rolling lyrics I can’t fault this hard hitting beast of a track, ‘Quake’ is coming for you.
The band is formed by the three elements of singer Anelise Kunz, multi-instrumentalist Fabio Couto and producer Gabriel Ralls, and the list of influences is longer than my, well long, including Nine Inch Nails, Garbage, PJ Harvey, Goldfrapp, Brody Dalle, Smashing Pumpkins, The Prodigy and Beastie Boys. You can certainly pick out the main ones when you here the dirty sound.
One thing ‘Quake’ does is make you want more from the start or run away and hide depending on your constitution, the heavy electro beats and distorted guitar come together and just force your body just to thrash about like a hell fire beast of burden.
Apart from the very dramatic sounds, the vocals of Anelise Kunz are what smashes this track to the heavens and opens up the heavy feel of the entire song. You can pre-order now on iTunes and Google Play and is released to the masses on the May the 4th.
