Portugal. The Man – Plastic Soldiers (2013)


Portugal. The Man 2013

‘Plastic Soldiers’ is a much more poppy sound than the last Portugal The Man track featured on this blog. 5 years and 4 albums after 2008’s Censored Colors, the Alaskan band had teamed up with producer Danger Mouse. The result was 2013’s Evil Friends. After a slow start, the opening track sparks into life with snare and handclaps and some wobbly synthesiser, which all neatly offset John Gourley’s despondent lyrics. At one point, it sounds remarkably like a Polyphonic Spree number. Have a good week.
