plastic flowers – “half life”

– featured image courtesy of the artist –

george samaras sits at the helm of plastic flowers, a project that has swayed between a solo production outlet and a full-band experience throughout its transcontinental voyage from greece to london.  armed with a hazy catalogue of material that has existed in some form since 2013, samaras will return with his third full-length, absent forever, on november 10th via the native sound.

a recurring theme threaded through absent forever is samaras’ preference towards recording directly to tape; the ensuing analogue warmth certainly permeates throughout “half life,” the album’s latest preview.  a woozy, angular buzz-saw of a guitar riff chugs resolutely in front of a syncopated drum beat, the resulting mid-tempo foundation providing perfect fodder for samaras’ cavernous lead vocal.  “half life” feels appropriately haunting, tinted with the warble of an aged reel-to-reel.  listen in below.
