Plastiscines – Barcelona
OK, I’m almost six months late with this one, but I only stumbled on it via a Chew Lips remix and had to work back to the original. Released in May, this is an infectious few minutes of French Rock’n’Roll from an all-girl four-piece. It’s driven by chunky Jack White-alike guitars, but the melody is pure pop. On this initial evidence, they come across as sounding like the missing link between the Runaways and the Go-Gos, which as all-girl reference points go, ain’t a bad start.
