Plastic Picnic - As Long As You Need
“Plastic Picnic has a real knack for making synthesizers sound epic” – NPR
“Catchy, danceable beats paired with melancholy lyricism and shimmery melodies” – Billboard
“As Long As You Need is a daily fitting title, the album is a very sincere and vulnerable large chunk of our personal experiences over the past decade. I wanted our first LP to really feel like getting to know us, what we’ve experienced and what we’re learning as we age together. A big theme was confrontation— things I personally avoided for most of my twenties— past traumas and unhealthy coping mechanisms. Through the pandemic, some new perspective and lots of therapy, I was able to make true progress. Forgiveness was a huge part of that, both receiving it and giving it. As Long As You Need is a personal title in that way, because apparently I needed a long time to get there, but I’m feeling so grateful at the arrival.” – Plastic Picnic
Plastic Picnic is an indie rock band based in Brooklyn, NY. Despite all having roots in the Pacific Northwest, the members didn’t come together until the two separate duos of singer Emile and guitarist Lincoln and drummer Gordon and bassist Marshall met in New York in 2016. Since their formation, the band has been creating a unique brand of orchestral indie pop, showcased on their two EP’s Plastic Picnic and Vistalite. Plastic Picnic’s distinct sound has garnered them festival appearances, song placements on hit TV shows Homeland and Shameless, and over 150,000 average monthly listeners on Spotify. Plastic Picnic is set to release their highly anticipated debut full length album in 2022.
