It all started with a leading shout-out on Twitter. Our favorite local slop pop band Cocktails outed fellow bandmate Lauren Matsui as also being in the BRAND new synthy-goodness duo Plastic Pulse, along with Isaac Fratini. The name fits perfectly – ’80s synthetic beats that rhythmically punch as if you’re in a high-speed pixelated chase. Based out of San Francisco, Plastic Pulse has only been in existence since July but has already shared an EP on Soundcloud. We’re leaving first track “Numb” off of the EP below for you to judge for yourself, and be on the lookout for a still-being-planned January show.
