Interview

After writing their first international hit ("Loser") in high school and playing sold-out shows with the Hives, the Slits and Iggy Pop across Europe while still teenagers, it was never going to be long before Katty Besnard (vocals), Marine Neuilly (guitar), Anais Vandevyvere (drums), and Louise Basilien (bass) needed a few new continents to conquer.
The American hype Nylon magazine signed them on their new Nylon Records. “People don’t expect us, we’re just 21 years old now, and we’ve already recorded our second album, traveled…. It’s not that usual to meet girls like us.” Neuilly
After an American tour, The Plastiscines are back in France to present their new album via Because Music, recorded Love in Malibu earlier this year.
“About Love” is an album of stylishly sexy candy-punk that was produced by Butch Walker (Katy Perry, Pink, Avril Lavigne) and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Muse, Foo Fighters, Franz Ferdinand).“Butch saw us playing Nancy Sinatra’s ‘These Boots Are Made For Walking’ and immediately fell in love with us,” explains Vandevyvere of the origins of the garage-pop collaboration. The result is also the first time the girls have written the majority of their songs in English rather than their native French. “I have the impression English words sound more poetic,” explains Neuilly of glamorously romantic tracks like "Barcelona" and "Runnaway”. Truthfully though, once filtered through Besnard’s husky, yet honey-dipped tones, everything sounds pretty amazing
