Polyplastic w/ Deserta + Bamenda at the Hi Hat!


Polyplastic is the project of Los Angeles natives Charlie Ellis and Emily Ibarra with producer and guitarist Dylan Bostick. Inspired by his time as a welder in North Philadelphia, Ellis’ songwriting is influenced by industrial and post-punk genres, marrying lyrical melodies with angular guitar lines and a driving rhythm section. With a few bare-bones demos, the band started playing shows in LA and touring the US, and have since supported acts such as Wolf Alice, Priests, and Ryley Walker. They independently released their debut EP, Not No, in Summer 2018, which earned them a spot as an official SXSW showcasing artists in 2019 as well as radio play on BBC Radio 6 with Steve Lamacq. After releasing a series of singles with corresponding clothing lines and visual elements in 2019, Polyplastic is preparing to release their first physical album, due out on Grey Market Records later this year.

As experimental as it is enthralling, Black Aura My Sun applies the vapor-trailed production values and sublime dynamics of Doty's previous group projects (including post-rock band Saxon Shore and the synth-laced post-punk of Midnight Faces) to a shoegaze-y sound that splits the difference between Slowdive and Sigur Rós. Deserta expands and contracts, with chords that drift like clouds, drums that drag and dissipate, and hooks that hang in the air for what feels like forever. That doesn't mean Black Aura My Sun is a subtle or soft record. It actually whips up quite a racket and is particularly heavy when piped through a pair of headphones.
