Boston Manor – Plasticine Dreams

Somehow, I missed this song, but I wouldn’t want you to miss it. So here we go, after all. First of all, a little introduction… Contrary to their band name, Boston Manor are from Blackpool, UK. However, the rocking five-piece have many fans in the country of Uncle Sam.

A month and a half ago, Plasticine Dreams was the fifth track Boston Manor released ahead of their album Glue. This third album finds the band questioning the state of the world around them. They hope the album will be a call to arms for everybody who listens to it.

Plasticine Dreams for instance, is about what frontman Henry Cox calls ‘the throwaway culture of media’. He says art is treated as content nowadays. “One minute something is plastered everywhere you look and the next it’s faded into obscurity. I also feel like because it’s so easy to go viral now it also encourages people to make ‘content’ rather than art. We’re getting so much information constantly thrown at us that nothing is really absorbed or appreciated, you just click next when it’s finished.”

With its huge singalong chorus, Plasticine Dreams is destined to become a live favourite.
