Plastic Picnic is a Brooklyn band made up of PNW transplants who found one other after moving to New York. Their indie dream-rock combines shimmering synths, atmospheric guitar, and bittersweet lyrics that deal with loss, isolation, and anxiety.
Recorded in a cabin in upstate NY, their debut album, As Long As You Need, explores the space between joy and sorrow, searching for hope amidst dark times. The album reached #10 Most Added on NACC radio and
#25 for Sub-Modern Albums.
Plastic Picnic’s orchestral blend of indie-rock has garnered them song placements on TV shows such as Homeland and Shameless, as well as festival appearances. Following a set at Governor's Ball and a west coast tour, they’re set to tour further in 2023.
