Plastic Estate is a new duo from Wales, who just released their fourth single on Avant! Records. With equal parts New Order and The Cure, “This Place” feels like a natural progression of the Captured Tracks sound about ten years ago (think Craft Spells and Beach Fossils). I prefer the b-side “Have You Ever?” which has a bit more of an Italo feel and a different vocal sound. While it’s probably the most pop offering on the label so far, it in no way feels out of place in their catalogue. On their next release I hope they continue to explore the electronic side of their sound and perhaps go for a slightly dirtier sound.
