Plaster Cast share visuals for “Control” [Video]

The 4-member alternative pop band Plaster Cast caught our attention with their new single “Control” and its visually pleasing clip that encapsulates the band’s myriad of influences. The record opens up with a somber piano riff underpinned by warm lo-fi textures and crisp Balearic guitars. The track slowly builds up alongside Cameron Wilson‘s airy vocal runs, as he details his emotional pains and the difficulty of vulnerability. His vocals exude melancholic energy, and he delivers his lines in an almost passive way with a lorn feel to them. The record is also bolstered by Michaela Lusteg‘s looming harmonies that help add soulful padding underneath the track and gives it an other-wordly oomph. It’s a bit hard to classify the track as it weaves through a handful of genres with its experimental pop aesthetic, lo-fi sensibilities, and retro-house grooves.

The visuals are quite expressive and make use of several motifs and abstract set pieces from moody scenes, to the use of the famous Study Girl character (from the lo-fi girl Youtube channel). The transitions are seamless and the performance shots are well crafted to fit the progression of the visual, with both singers occupying their individual spaces.

“Control” is the lead single taken from Plaster Cast’s forthcoming EP of the same name. It is set for an August 12th release

Originally born within the bedrooms and domestic spaces of the group across Southern California, the Pacific Northwest, the Midwestern Desert, and New York City, producer Alex Esk first formed the project with vocalist Cameron Wilson in 2011 while both studied video art at UCSD. They eventually brought on Wilson’s sister Michaela Lusteg as their second vocalist, as well as producer/engineer Brah1m, whom Esk met during their time both working for The Real Housewives franchise.  With this lineup, Plaster Cast began their resilient intermittence of long-distance recordings, debuting in 2016 on critically-acclaimed label ZOOM LENS with their EP Permanence.
