New Zealand's finest aggressive noise punk band Hollywoodfun Downstairs will to tear you a new one with their insane latest single Plastic Fascinations! The three piece who are renowned for their raw guitar-heavy music worked with James Goldsmith (Die Die Die, Cut Off Your Hands, So So Modern and Zowie) on this new single. Goldsmith helped push the bands sound in a new direction, creating a dark mix of atmospheric textures and brutal tones.
"Plastic Fascinations started as an aggressive take on a situation and confrontation of a night - we then re-wrote it before recording the track, into something that is lyrically driven with a spazzy/pop band behind it." - Kurt Williams (Vox/Guitar)
Since their inception in 2011, Hollywoodfun Downstairs have toured internationally alongside acts such as Die Die Die, I Am Giant, Red Beard and Blacklist each time gathering cult-like followings especially in Australia and New Zealand. In 2013, the band were given the opportunity to showcase their hard hitting punk rock on an international stage at SXSW (US) and again in 2014 when the band performed at the Global Music Summit (NZ).
Plastic Fascinations is the first single from the bands debut album Reactions recorded at Munki Studios in Wellington during the winter of 2014. Hollywoodfun Downstairs had New York's Alan Douches (Funeral for a Friend, Every Time I Die, Cloud Nothings) master the album which Douches described it as "very unique, bold and colourful."
Plastic Fascinations is the first single from the bands forthcoming album Reactions which is set for release on August 7 2015 - The album has been described by Kurt Williams (Vox/Guitar) as "big brick wall about to explode!".
