Following on from their recent ‘1996’ single release, the Isle of Wight’s Plastic Mermaids have just announced a live tour which will see them play 4 headline dates, sticking close to their roots along the South Coast.

Plastic Mermaids have previously sold-out every hometown show they have played on the Island, which included their self-promoted, 700 people across 2-nights gig in a boat shed, simply because there weren’t any venues big enough for them on the Island.

The band’s love of The Flaming Lips is evident in their ecstatic live show, which has manifested itself into the sparkly-gold-cape-clad choir that has recently been accompanying Plastic Mermaids recent gigs alongside a mannequin covered in mirror ball tiles who is often suspended above their stage set.

Expect to see this and much more in their upcoming 2019 live shows, alongside new tracks from their upcoming debut album to be announced early next year.

13th March – London Lexington
14th March – Brighton Prince Albert
15th March – Portsmouth Square Tower
16th March – Southampton Joiners

The Plastic Mermaids’ new psychedelic pop single ‘1996’ has been supported by BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders and BBC6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and Chris Hawkins.  You can check out their genius video for ‘1996’ here – the video clip was entirely directed and produced by the band, featuring a love story between a robot and a human.
