Fresh from the release of the brain-melting single Disco Wings, Isle of Wight-hailing five-piece outfit Plastic Mermaids are taking their delightfully wonky psych-pop show on tour (which has previously drawn acclaim from figures as esteemed as Wayne Coyne for its use of costumes, lasers and glitter cannons) taking in Stockton’s Georgian Theatre on Monday 18th October, for what promises to be a chaotic evening of hyperkinetic psychedelia.

If the chameleonic delights on offer in 2019’s Suddenly Everything Explodes LP are anything to go by, I can guarantee that they’ll make for a totally transcendental live act, with a heavy emphasis on groove, melody, dissonance and batshit left-turns; their music rarely stays in the same place for too long, and it is utterly fresh and relentlessly entertaining. Guitarist Chris Newnham is thrilled to be back in the region, “We’re so stoked to be playing back in Stockton. We were lucky enough to play this venue on our last tour and it’s got such a rad vibe and the audience always provides such good energy. We can’t wait to try some out some new tunes at our Northern second home.”

Support comes from singer-songwriter Maja Lena, whose recent LP The Keeper is a rich collection of astral folk with a strong emphasis on atmosphere and intricate melodies, making for a satisfyingly eclectic and profoundly forward-looking bill of talented and daring acts.
