Indie-outfit Soft Plastics (formerly Frog Eyes) is swimming in new content, dropping three new tracks along with a music video for “Here’s Where The Sun Was” that places you inside of an aquarium.
Soft Plastics only showed their face to the world a couple of months ago, coming hot onto the scene as if it just unlocked a DLC character in a video game.
Normally, bands release one song at a time to try and hype up their album. Soft Plastics has their own agenda though, releasing a triad of funky songs in an attempt to spice things up. These trippy tracks are part of something bigger to come. 5 Dreams, the debut album from the group, it set to release later this year via Paper Bag Records.
The new music video, shot by vocalist and songwriter Carey Mercer’s 10-year-old son before the COVID-19 crisis, now holds a different meaning to the band.
“The animals in the tank live in isolation. And I empathize with them more now than I ever did before,” says Mercer.
Hey! I’m Allen Steinberg and I’m currently based in Belleville, Ontario. I’m a Journalism & Communications student doing my four-week placement with Canadian Beats because I love writing and I love music. Outlets like Canadian Beats are important because they care about showing off smaller / newer artists who may otherwise not get much exposure. I think it really keeps them going. I also sing and play guitar in my band Arm’s Length. Happy to be here!
