Plastic Picnic

Brooklyn quartet, Plastic Picnic have often been described as an “indie post rock project soundtracking a John Hughes movie.” Their sound pulls influences from the retro era with a charming orchestra of analog synths running through just about every track. Plastic Picnic strive to present the stark contrast between the idyllic and the reality, while also preaching the appreciation of the ordinary life. This concept was inspired by the overwhelming powers of social media, and our obsession with the “over-curated lifestyle.” Plastic Picnic is a sophisticated mirroring of modern society, coupled with a feat of retro, synth arrangements to complete that longing nostalgia for simpler times." -Atwood Magazine
