Los Angeles – LA-based Cleopatra Records releases the self-titled debut album by New York's Black Plastic on . One of Cleopatra's newest signees, Black Plastic is the musical project of visual artist Kevin Grady, with production by artist/producer André Obin, whose track "The Arsonist" was featured on Cleopatra’s recent "Occult Box" compilation.
Dark, moody and mostly electronic, Black Plastic give a modern, danceable twist to the dark wave genre. "It's club music for vampires," says Grady. "In spirit it has a connection to DIY synthpop and punk, in that I don't consider myself a musician as such. I'm an art director, and this is an art-directed album. It's not real. That's why I called it Black Plastic."
Grady is perhaps best known as the founder of Lemon, an award-winning pop art magazine with a broad cult following. Lavishly produced and designed, the magazine has hosted a range of impressive contributors, including David Bowie, Daft Punk, Jeff Koons, Sonic Youth and many others.
Black Plastic will will play showcases in NY and LA later this spring and early summer.
