One of our current favourite local bands, Soft Plastics, is made up of Sophie Scott-Maunder, Jonathan Shirley, and Laura Robinson — an indie rock trio based here in Wellington, NZ. The band's music takes 90's shoegaze and 2010's alt-rock in its stride, and turns heartache into killer pop hooks.
"Loozer was a collaborative effort, with Lochie Noble (Transistor) helping out recording the drums in Laura's flat (followed by some Good Boy Sandwiches from James and Al) and finally Oli Devlin (Hans Pucket) recording vocals and providing feedback with double tracking." — Jonathan Shirley.
Engineer James Goldsmith finalised the recording process, and as Jonathan describes "with James it took on a whole new life of feeling huge and a lot more rocky- which is definitely what it needed. We are really happy with what he did, especially with our home recording."
