Plastic Mermaids are a five-piece band from the Isle of Wight who, after building their own analogue studio, have self-produced one of the most genuinely original and sonically adventurous debut albums you’ll hear. They are brothers Jamie and Douglas Richards, who collaborate on vocals, synths and samples, along with guitarist Chris Newnham, bassist Tom Farren and drummer Chris Jones. Born out of the ashes of previous bands Magic Octagon and Neon Fetus, Plastic Mermaids are not a band who have ever wanted for ambition. The band released debut EP ‘Dromtorp’ in March 2014 to widespread critical acclaim, following up with the ‘Inhale The Universe’ EP in March 2015 and third EP ‘Everything Is Yellow and Yellow Is My Least Favourite Colour’ in June 2016. Later that same year, in November, they holed up in their barn-turned-studio to start work on their first full LP, which was released in 2019.
