This project was started by Maral Afsharian and Saeid Nadjafi in spring 2008.
Maral completed unfinished lines that saeid had put together before and wrote lyrics for them; They recorded 3 songs and released them on their myspace page.
After recieved great feedback from their friends and musicians in Iran they decided to apply for SXSW 2009 and they got an invitation to perform in Austin. But they didn't make it to get a USA visa so they had to cancel their show.
The Plastic Wave attracted a lot of attention from major newspapers around the world, such as "The Guardian", "Songlines Magazine" and "Irish Times"; as one of the fewest music groups leaded by a female vocalist in Islamic Republic of Iran.
Ignoring all the problems and restriction they are facing every day, they decided to re-apply for SXSW 2010 and some other shows around the world so they can fulfill their dream of performing their music in other countries.
Influenced by bands and artists such as Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Archive, Massive attack and Goldfrapp, they describe their music as Electronic Psychedelic Rock. Most of the lyrics are reflecting their real life including emotions, problems as artists living in Iran and their ambition to do what they love to.
