THERE’s all manner of psychedelic sounds with the Isle of Wight’s Plastic Mermaids performing at the Old Fire Station tonight at 7.30pm.

The show is part of the Arts By The Sea festival that runs this week.

The band have just headed out on a highly-anticipated debut UK tour this month, following the release of their stunning new EP ‘Everything Is Yellow And Yellow Is My Least Favourite Colour’, the third in a trilogy of EPs self-produced by the band (and released on Cross Keys Records).

Talking of the band‘s reputation for extraordinary live shows, Plastic Mermaids’ bassist Tom Farren said: “We try to be very dynamic if we can get away with it, take you on a journey… At times it’s just instrumental cello and piano - at other times we aim for well executed chaos, with choir, string section, homemade synthesisers, projections, light show, Patricia (the mirrorball mannequin) plus the full band and two drummers.”

Following a live in the studio set for BBC 6Music with DJ Marc Riley (an early supporter of the band), Plastic Mermaids are also shared one new video per week in the run up to the UK tour via a day spent recording in a church in sunny Ventnor (on the south side of the Isle of Wight).
