Brooklyn-based band Plastic Picnic release their single "September Second" today. It's a track with upbeat instrumentals but heavier lyrical content, interlacing 1980's synth-style and tantalizing guitar riffs.
"September Second" is the band's second single off of upcoming EP Vistalite which drops July 19. Formed in 2016, Plastic Picnic has a sound that seems to encompass both summer road trip mixes and heartbreak anthems. The band describes the new single as "a song about guilt and regret. While a breakup is never easy, this song is a confession - directly about the pain involved in that process." Although a serious storyline, the song itself is an easy one to rock out to, whether in the midst of a breakup or just searching for a retro-style summer song.
Upcoming live dates:
July 18 - Brooklyn, NY @ Market Hotel (Record Release Show) (w/ TOLEDO, Pecas, Hypoluxo)
July 20 - Seattle, WA @ Capitol Hill Block Party
