Quake – Plastique (reviewed by Dave Franklin)

11035313_812517938830346_8230624647920208335_nPlastique operate at a musical crossroads. Roads lead in to their location from electro, industrial, new wave pop and alternative rock and where they all intersect Quake is created, a sizzling blend of darkwave dance and razor-wire guitar riffs. It’s the perfect balance between noise and melody, never getting too caught up in its own industrial soundscapes but always ensuring that the groove is hammered home with the required impact. And as groove and grit fight for control of the song, the programmed drums keep everything grounded to a dark tribal dance beat.

At the other end of the M4 Corridor, Bristol’s Candy Darling are exacting the same sorts of primal screams from their technology and the thought of both of those bands on the same bill is something that someone needs to make a reality.
