Plastic Platform: C20 Le Galaxie
For our 20th Plastic Platform mix, we looked to the coruscating-synth spectacular outfit known as Le Galaxie, and the 30 mins of music is everything you'd expect from the good-time Dubliners.
The foursome splice the suave nature of Chromatics with a busier, wholly ebullient pop-sensibility - which culminated in the Fade 2 Forever EP released over the summer (released on a super sexy white 10"). As hinted at the their intro below, it all wouldn't sound too out of place in the Drive Soundtrack; so slip on your most stylish pair of gloves, perfect your thousand-yard stare, turn it up and put your foot down.
When we're out driving, making our way to or from a gig, we usually break out the CD wallets / MP3 players.
