Little wonder this all-girl, Parisian band has already bewitched teenage boys back home and is being tipped to do the same in Britain. Aged 21 and 22, Plastiscines formed at school five years ago after Marine was given a guitar and Katty discovered she could sing. Within weeks, they enlisted two friends and began trying to be their heroes, The Strokes. The problem was we couldnt play our instruments, said Marine. We tried to cover The Strokes, The Libertines and Radiohead but they didnt sound right. So we started writing. An album released in France two years ago caught the atten- tion of trendy American music mag Nylon, which sent the band on tour in the US this summer and will release follow-up album About Love in Britain early next year. Produced by Butch Walker (Pink, Avril Lavigne), About Love boasts a dozen punk- pop tracks. First single Barcelona is about an all-night, end-of-tour party the band threw in the Spanish city. So what happens at a Plastiscines party? Dunno, shrugs bassist Louise. It always ends in a blackout. Having appeared on Gossip Girl, Plastiscines are hot, though not hot enough to have -- as rumour had it -- been given a commendation by the French minister of culture, an award said to have been presented to them by Pete Doherty. Weve played wit h Pete, says Louise, But weve never met a French minister or received an award. Maybe after the album comes out, then well be worth it!
