Premiere: Plastic Weather - "Doppelganger"
5 piece synth punk band Plastic Weather hails from Portland, Oregon. Their gritty writing is scattered all over their new single “Doppelganger.” The song feels like a dance party, great for any pregame shenanigans you're headed for.

Though, this writer will say this track is *very* therapeutic for any said mischief. Listening to “Doppelganger” also gives off this Scooby-Doo vibe, and not in a childlike way. In a holy shit Shaggy I had too many Scooby Snacks and I see a ghost kinda way. The added psychedelic keys give off a speedy and tantalizing presence to the song. Embodying the classic styling of synthwave with pop punk drum notes is a really unique use of producing, making Plastic Weather a standout amongst Pacific Northwest bands.
This new single “Doppelganger” comes off the bands debut EP Plastic Weather, which is full of 80’s synth and crying drums. Plastic Weather epitomizes the like of The Go Go’s, with their fierce attitude and musical talent. The predominantly queer and femme band focus their lyricism around feminist topics. While dancing to their tunes you feel really heard from by Plastic Weather, they get your struggles, because they’ve lived them. If your a fan of Le Tigre and The Faint, Plastic Weather should definitely be in your music library. Catch Plastic Weather playing in Seattle on February 24th at Sloth Manor.
Here is a link to the first single “Doppelganger” from the EP, we hope you take a listen and like what you hear.
