In sound, The Plastics pay homage to retro-rock and classic pop imagery. The Plastics are a live performance orientated band and have already performed with the majority of South Africa’s most sought after musical acts. In their first year on the local music scene, The Plastics claimed 1st prize at The Redbull Radar competition at Rocking the Daisies in 2008 and were finalists in ‘The Road to VFest’ competition for the best unsigned band in SA.

The Plastics started in 2007 when the Righini brothers decided to expand their old punk band and reform it with a fresh take on music. Soon after they started this endeavour, classically trained guitarist Karl Rohloff joined the band on bass to create the retro blend of bluesy indie, disco-punk sound that is known as The Plastics today.

With the release of their latest album “Pyramid,” three singles (“Stereo Kids” “Best Pretenders” and “Occasional Lies”) play listed on high rotation on 5fm, and with hugely successful nationwide tours under their belts, the Plastics have much to look forward to.
