Have you noticed how whenever people discuss a severe crisis, they’re either obnoxiously loud and brash or tend to tip-toe around the conversation, struggling to say what they really mean without offending the other person? Psycho & Plastic took that “delicate dance” that can happen and transformed it into an ambient gem with their latest single, ‘Back And Forth’, released today via GiveUsYourGold.
Psycho & Plastic is the creation of Germany-based Alexandre Decoupigny and Thomas Tichai. The pair have recently been featured in Paul Hanford’s (of Lost And Sound podcasts) new book Coming to Berlin which highlights the music scene in the city as well as the unique life and culture found there. If you’re curious about hearing more of the duo’s sound, we’d encourage you to check out ‘Imago’ as both singles will appear on Psycho & Plastic’s upcoming LP, slated for release later this year.
The pair tell us about the concept behind the single: “We wrote Back And Forth to reflect the delicate dance of conflicting interest in the face of severe crisis. Despite sounding deceptively light and effortless, composing this piece was actually quite the challenge for us. We had to send it back and forth between our two studios many times to refine the statement.”
