Music Review: Going Away by Plastic Glass

© Crying Elephant

Going Away is the latest release from four-piece indie band Plastic Glass. Hailing from Sunderland the band are made up of Lewis Conlin (vocals) Dylan Abbott (lead guitar) Ben Richardson (bass) and Frazer Graham (drums).

Having amassed coverage from This Feeling, It’s All Indie and BBC 6 Music, Plastic Glass are no strangers to critical acclaim. The band have played soldout headline shows at The Think Tank, Newcastle and Independent, Sunderland as we all supporting The Snuts, The K’s and The Pale White. 

Going Away does not mess around, crashing straight in with bright guitars and a rolling drum beat you can tell that this track will have waves of energy. The hooky guitars are riff-driven and have a heavy vibe to them compared to what the band have already released.

The lyrics capture an emotion which I am sure is something that most of us have felt at one time or another. Embodying the feeling of wanting to get away from a particular place or situation they have a very timely nature and the song is one which all can relate to.

Lewis Conlin’s vocals uphold a bright melody which cleverly masks the lyrics somewhat melancholic feeling. His vocal tone casts a warm light over the lyrics to create a sound which is wholly uplifting. 

Going Away is yet another great release from the Sunderland indie outfit, which showcases a more mature sound. It is clear to see that Plastic Glass are definitely ones to watch and I’d make sure to look out for any future releases.
