Today sees the release of The Plastics’ new music video for their single, ALL I REALLY WANT.

The video features the band while they are in studio recording and is a representation of them in their natural habitat. The visual style and artistic nature of the video complements the direction the band has taken with their new album – the psychedelic feel coupled with the beauty of nature is something they have always found appealing.

The video was shot in December 2015 at Digital Forest Studios in Cape Town and directed by Barry de Villiers.

“The abstract flashing images were not originally planned. I started filming various textures in and around the studio in between takes and the idea came to me to use flashes of these textures in the video. I think it works really well and adds a special dynamic to the video. I feel the video would not have been the same without these unplanned shots. I am very proud of the final product, and consider it one of my finest edits.” – Barry de Villiers.

“We’re SO excited for everyone to see the video. We’ve not released one in fair while, and not done many performance-type videos so it’s something different from us. We’ve always been about trying out new ideas that interest us, and this is another one of those.” – The Plastics.
