Plastic Mermaids return with their second EP and suddenly everything is bigger, brighter and more ambitious. Recorded and mixed in their own studio, which they built from scratch, it is the sound of a young band reaching beyond the stars. Inhale The Universe is the perfect title for a set of six songs that draw in influences from across the galaxy and breathe them out in an exciting, cohesive form.
Such a strong collection deserves special treatment, so we have gone the whole hog and pressed a limited number of transparent purple 12″ vinyl records with yellow splatter effect (above). We have also, for the first time, manufactured some CDs. They’re the future, or something. Next stop Our Price.
Playing In Your Mind is the single that precedes the EP release, and it has already picked up radio plays from Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and Dermot O’Leary on Radio 2.
