British alternative electronic band New Order has released another single from their upcoming new album Music Complete. Called ‘Plastic‘, it’s a fast electronic dance track, and features some stellar backing vocals from La Roux.
The track is the second single from New Order’s new album to be released, the first one ‘Restless‘ was released a couple of weeks ago.
And what’s interesting to me about New Order’s ‘Plastic‘ is it definitely has a bit of a Pet Shop Boys vibe to it. A band I loved when they were at the height of their success. Nice to hear New Order giving a modern twist on that sound here.
Although, a ‘twist’ is just a little bit of what they do here, as ‘Plastic‘ is fabulous, and easily one of the best songs they’ve released. (And, yes, I’m loving the Donna Summers influence here too).
Meanwhile, listen to New Order’s ‘Plastic‘ in the video below. Isn’t that one of the coolest dance tracks you’ve heard in a while?
