Flat Plastic presents The Vanity Project
FLAT PLASTIC PRESENTS:
The Vanity Project
The Vanity Project can’t sit still. Using a loop pedal and far more instruments than it’s wise for two people to play, this duo write apocolyptic disco jams about corrupt politicians and anthemic ballads about the death of idealism. Having drawn sonic comparisons to Blur and Everything Everything, their gigs are a colourful explosion of balloons, party poppers and razor sharp wit. Winners of the 2016 national iSessions contest, they’ve been written about in the Independent, played on Radio 6 and garnered praise from the likes of Marc Riley and Everything Everything frontman Jonathan Higgs.
Ginger Snaps is multi-instrumentalist singer and producer Jay Brook from Northampton. Whilst also being a main writer for the Radio X play-listed ‘OhBoy!’, Jay & his writing partner Lee Irons have spent time in their Northampton Lab cooking up a brand new sound.
“Baggier than a vintage shop’s sale rail and laced in all manner of swirling psych, Ginger Snaps’ breakbeat pop is as flexible as they come.” – DIY
“Ginger Snaps dwells in slacker climes, matching fuzzed up riffs against boom-bap hip-hop beats. Re-calls everyone from Beck to De La Soul, but really it could only come from the mind of a certain Northampton dweller” – CLASH
“If there’s a band that’s needed right now its Ginger Snaps; melding oldskool hip hop breaks with modern day pop sensibilities” – BBC Introducing
