(Review) Plastic Barricades – Masterminds


Plastic Barricades has recently put out a fantastic new single “Masterminds” that offers an uplifting message in a pretty relaxed rock and roll package. The song explores the feeling of following one’s dreams, how it feels to do so and some advice on how to stay that course. With easy-going harmonies coupled with inspired production, Plastic Barricades have come up with a delightful song to listen to when you need a little inspiration to be your own personal “mastermind of everyday”.

Dan Kert’s vocals cloud-surf comfortably at high octaves with big open notes that give off the image of a liberated driver of a drop-top convertible, singing his way down a long stretch of open highway. Frazer James Webster competently balances a sway-worthy rhythm with flavorful builds in percussion that keep the track feeling fresh and dynamic. Meanwhile, Daniele Borgato holds down bass guitar on “Masterminds”, offering a constant and energetic soul to the record.

I really like this song. And, call me dorky, but I went ahead and took the favorite song poll on the band’s website, http://www.plasticbarricades.eu, and without spoiling it for you guys, I can say that a good percentage the fans agree. So go listen to “Masterminds” by Plastic Barricades. You wont regret it.
