Plastic Pinks, Sans Johnny Depp, Explore ‘World’s End’
Miami scuzz-rockers Plastic Pinks are set to release their new EP, El Animal, this Friday via Ghost Drag. Mixed by Gordon Raphael (the Strokes, Regina Spektor), the follow-up to last year's album Sunnyside Rabbits arose out of health complications. Just around the time the band was set to tour behind their debut, frontman June Summer suffered a back injury that forced the trek's cancellation, but also gave them time to work on new material — including "At World's End," premiering today, right here. Listen to the mucky garage cut below, accompanied by their upcoming tour dates.
Describing the new track to CLRVYNT — which, judging by the title, I speculate is inspired by an intense Pirates of the Caribbean binge-watching sesh — the band said, "'At World’s End' is about how we go through life seeking riches or whatever was embedded into our minds, and how we forget to actually live our lives to the fullest, when knowing that at the end of this journey we all suffer the same fate."
