Plastic Barricades release “One for the Road”: an ode to freedom of exploration
London alt-indie duo Plastic Barricades is releasing “One for the Road”. This “ode to the freedom of exploration” will be the first single from the upcoming sophomore LP “Self-Theories”, due in early 2020.
Open window, open road, open heart… The air smells new and fresh, wind playing in your hair. You can feel the tempo of the modern world slowing down and the skies smiling at you. Your friends are with you in the van. You don’t run away from your daily routine, you just learn to absorb and recharge, to appreciate the world around you and to be present in the moment, letting go of fears and worries, even just for a day or two. Let’s spend our lives on stories! Money disappears all too easily, but stories last millennia.
