Video: Plastic Barricades – Second-hand Dreams

London-based alternative rock act Plastic Barricades have been gracing these pages since 2019 and never fail to disappoint with their unique brand of irreverent rock. Their latest is no exception. It comes complete with a video and is called Second-hand Dreams.

By Graeme Smith

Second-hand Dreams speaks of the prevailing feeling in modern society that we are always striving for something just out of reach, and the real blocker in our life is conformity. It’s suitably expansive, painting a picture of an alternative reality through gentle folk rock and poetic, image-laden lyrics.

The track will feature on Plastic Barricades’ upcoming third full-length album We Stayed Indoors. The band is led by Dan Kert, and for the album he worked with Sheffield-based drummer Chris Barber, Berlin-based singer Aellie Koto, and singer-songwriters Luke Joyce and John Sibley. Mixing is by Tom Hill and mastering by Andy “Hippie” Baldwin.
