“The Plastic Pals was formed in Spring 2005. Guilty as charged is singer/songwriter/guitarist Hawk, aka Håkan Soold, who brought together Anders Sahlin (a guitarist who Hawk played with in the band Piglet in the 1980s) with Sweden´s answer to Sly & Robbie Olov Öqvist (drummer with Caroline Says/Cleveman Rössel Band and Wan Light) and Bengt Alm (bass player with Caroline Says/Cleveman Rössel Band and Wan Light). They released their debut album `Good Karma Café` in 2008. A somewhat americana-tinged affair, and yet still true to the twin guitar-paisley-garage-powerpop-New York rock aesthetics the band presented on their debut EP `The Band That´s Fun To Be With` (2006)”.
It`s seems a long time coming for a fresh track from Sweden`s The Plastic Pals. Renowned for their seasoned guitar driven Power-Pop with a versatile edge, the Stockholm four-piece have a superb taster for the new forthcoming album in the shape of “Leave It `Til Tomorrow”. A distinctively refreshing twist on their already winning formula, the lead single smells of rare 70`s vinyl and Art-Rock classics, we`re given a smooth Scott Walker-esque vocal lesson cutting a masterful path to cheery Beat-Pop backing harmonies. Success! The Plastic Pals are remaining true to their roots while exploring slightly more exotic musical territories.
The new album is produced by Chris Cacavas (Green on Red) at Studio White Lodge, Ludwigsburg, Germany – with sound demon Rainer Lolk as engineer. Tenatative release in 2012.
