about

After a long hiatus since "24 Hours Awake" (released in 2015), Plastique Noir is back with its long-awaited fourth album: "Iskuros" (once again by Wave Records).

Transliterated from the Greek, ἰσχυρός ("brave", "strong") is a semi-conceptual proposal that claims for spotlights on this band which has been battling for its place under the sun (?) along fifteen years from the underground of the Brazilian indie scene. Unbreakable before the neo-totalitarianism, cognitive paralysis of the public opinion and the imminent collapse of civilization farce, Plastique Noir reminds its followers that it's still alive and more than ever. Meanwhile, "iskuros" is also a false cognate that suggests the idea of darkness, thus suggesting that, as a Brazilian post-punk trio, now they are back to the aesthetic environment from which it was born, bearing the spirit of those who recognize themselves once again at home.

"Iskuros" features ten tracks that display a mature and more comfortable band than in its last record, when it was looking for a new identity among the tough process of establishing its new formation. Now, with updated sound textures, painstaking production signed by Jean Rié (Fake Movie) and a succinct and yet fiercing tracklist, plus the tour experiences between Airton (voices and beats), Danyel (guitar) and Deivy (bass), Plastique Noir is finally able to explore new Brazilian, foreign and digital roads with renewed vigor, thus helping to disseminate and extend the frontiers of genuine Brazilian Gothic music.

portuguese:
Após um longo hiato desde "24 Hours Awake" (lançado em 2015), o Plastique Noir está de volta com seu aguardado quarto álbum da carreira, "Iskuros" (novamente pela Wave Records).

Transliterada do grego ἰσχυρός ("bravo", "forte"), a proposta semiconceitual do lançamento reclama de volta os holofotes sobre uma banda que, desde os subterrâneos do cenário independente, tem batalhado por seu lugar ao sol (?) ao longo de mais de quinze anos. Sem esmorecer diante do neototalitarismo, da paralisia cognitiva na opinião pública e do colapso iminente da farsa civilizatória, o Plastique Noir lembra aos seus seguidores que segue mais vivo do que nunca. Ao mesmo tempo, "iskuros" é um falso cognato remetente à ideia de escuridão, assim sugerindo que o trio post-punk cearense agora retorna para o ambiente estético de que é originário com o espírito de quem se reconhece de novo em casa.

Contendo dez faixas, "Iskuros" exibe um Plastique Noir amadurecido e mais à vontade que em sua última obra, quando então buscava uma nova identidade em meio ao difícil processo de estabelecimento de sua nova formação. Agora, com texturas sonoras atualizadas, a esmerada produção assinada por Jean Rié (Fake Movie) e um repertório sucinto porém contundente, mais o entrosamento entre Airton (voz e beats), Danyel (guitarra) e Deivy (baixo) advindo da recente travessia de diversos estados e países, o Plastique Noir finalmente se mostra apto a percorrer com renovado vigor as estradas brasileiras, estrangeiras e digitais, ajudando a disseminar e estender as fronteiras da genuína música gótica brasileira.
