Plastic Animals formed in Edinburgh in 2006 and, between long periods of hibernation, began creating three minute punk messes. 2011 has seen something of an awakening, on course to include more gigs and exposure than the previous four years combined. Inspired by bands ranging from The Velvet Underground to Deerhunter, they have embraced a fuller, more ambient sound without abandoning their noisy alt-rock roots entirely. Their EP ‘A Dark Spring’ was self-released in July 2011.
