Barcelona, The Plastiscines

I know I'm not the only one out there who jots down random finds to look up on the internet later, right? Well Nylon magazine's babies, The Plastiscines, have been a band I've been meaning to look into for a while, and now that I finally did, I'm definitely girl-crushing!

“People don’t expect us,” grins Marine Neuilly, the Plastiscines guitarist. “We’re just 21 years old now, and we’ve already recorded our second album, traveled… it’s not that usual to meet girls like us.” [Nylon]

Guitarist Marine Neuilly, singer Katty Besnard, bassist Louise Basilien and drummer Anais all came together in 2004. There name comes from the line "plastiscine porters with looking glass ties" from the Beatles' song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." They're from France, and are big in the underground scene over there, and now they're hitting the US. On their myspace, their influences are listed as B-52's, Blondie, the Ramones, The Kinks and The Strokes, just to name a few. They released their first album, LP1, in 2007 and now they're with Nylon Records and their EP, Barcelona, Just came out a couple of weeks ago. Oh, and did I mention that their gorgeous?? These girls are definitely going to be covering magazines and internet sites with their great style, looks, and music! You can check them out at, become a fan on facebook, and download their EP on iTunes !!

I'm definitely keeping my eye on the Plastiscines
