NEWS: Plastic Mermaids share live video for ‘Beyond the Cosmos After Death’

Hailing from the Isle of Wight, Plastic Mermaids have built their name on peddling a blend of synth-psych.  Following the release of their new EP Everything is Yellow and Yellow is My Least Favourite Colour, they’ve been releasing a series of live videos.  The latest in the series is for ‘Beyond the Cosmos After Death.’

The band say of the track: “This was my favourite one to do live, the whole song is basically one big crescendo so with 15 musicians in the same room all feeding off each other it created an amazing energy that you wouldn’t get another way.  The first time we played it though it got so loud we clipped almost every channel, so we had to turn down lot of microphones before going at it again.  Towards the end of the song RHAIN went off into and almost ‘Great Gig in the Sky’ style vocal solo which was really unexpected and unrehearsed but pretty special, I’m so please we caught that take as I’m not sure it’d ever happen the same again.”  Watch below.

Tonight Plastic Mermaids begin an extensive tour of the UK that runs until November and sees them travelling the length and breadth of the country.  It’s their first proper tour around the country.  Details below.
