The Plastics Revolution is a group of 20-year-old friends who, after separately playing in different projects for years, finally decided to join into a single band in Fall 2007. The most unique quality of the band, which clearly sets them apart from others, is the evident strong bond that unites the six members, all of them being already best friends before the project started. The chemistry among them is not only patent during their energetic and highly interactive live performances, but also in their compositions, which present a balanced, original, and well-integrated mixture of the diverse ideas and backgrounds of all members. Of all their influences, those which can be perhaps more easily noticed in their music are bands such as The Arcade Fire, The Flaming Lips, Broken Social Scene, Belle & Sebastian, and The Klaxons, among others. So far, The Plastics Revolution has recorded a 6-song EP and a 9 song LP. They are currently working on their next album. Their first EP was recorded at their home studio in 2008. Although recorded only as a demo for their upcoming full-length LP, the quality of the production was good enough for the songs "So They Wait" (the band's first single) and "Ahora somos parte" (the band's first Spanish single) to make their way into Mexico City's most important rock radio station (Reactor 105.7fm), as well as into other radio stations across the country. On August 2009, the band realesed their first full-lenght LP independently, featuring 9 songs (2 in Spanish and 7 in English). This homonymous record, sold mainly through indie record stores and indie lifestyle stores in Mexico, sold out in just 3 weeks and keeps generating good sales via Web retailers such as iTunes, Napster, Emusic, Rhapsody, etc. At the same time of the release, the band released the single "Saturno", wich made its way into the main rock stations in Mexico. Furthermore, their single "Cars From Mars" helped them get noticed internationally, drawing the attention of MTVmusic.com as part of their "Needle in the Haystack" feature. In May 2010, the band released "Kibera", the first single of their upcoming album, which got the band heavy airplay in Mexico's top rock radio stations, as well as thousands of digital downloads via a free download promotion with Mexico City's main radio station Reactor 105.7.
