Rough around the edges and chaotic fun rockers Hot Plastic released their debut single “Keep Up” on September 21st of 2018. The song is infection and fun the instrumentation is familiar bass, guitar, and drums. Instantly the song is a stand out because of the riffage that is joined quickly by a sixteenth note drum groove. The verse enters and the groove becomes dance floor esque while the singer performs with a teasing level of vocal fry. A four on the floor pre-chorus allows the listener to breath before the chorus that is all about youthful rebellion and having your fun before you head home. The form repeats itself and the song becomes more familiar. Then a guitar solo that is wet with reverb and delay and is echoing like an alarm going off while you’re having your fun. The solo swells into a piercing high note that leads back into the pre-chorus and chorus. This song is fun and Hot Plastic is hard at work to crank out more tunes which should debut on the new years eve! Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this band stream “Keep Up” below and find out more about Hot Plastic.
