New Fries - "Ploce"

Toronto's New Fries call their sound No Wave inspired. Their new single, "Ploce," might be the epitome of that description. The song is like New Wave stripped to it's very bare elements. Stripped down New Wave is an oxymoron, but welcome to "Ploce." There is a distinct groove throughout the song, although it's a groove that dares you to try to dance to it. It has some really accessible and almost mainstream elements, but it has even more that are too bizarre and discordant to be even remotely mainstream. It's almost like Blondie and Sneaker Pimps collaborated with Yoko Ono. For those of us that description appeals to, "Ploce" will be thrilling to.

You can watch the video for "Ploce" below. Is The Idea Of Us, the upcoming album from New Fries, will be out August 7 on Telephone Explosion. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on New Fries, check them out on Facebook and Bandcamp.
