“Future in Plastics from Brooklyn, New York delivered a very memorable performance. Their melodramatic punk rock features a lead female singer and a male singer who sometimes converse in dialoge. This and their edgy song structures are sometimes reminiscent of the B-52s. The band definitely knows how to captivate the audience and make them listen to their lyrics. Lead singer Coco Medvitz was obviously pregnant at the time of the performance, so when the time came to introduce the band members, singer and guitarist Culley Johnson did not fail to introduce the baby as well. Future in Plastics is definitely a band to look out for and catch live if you can.”

“Listening to the 3-song EP from the Future in Plastics, you can hear the sparkling cohesiveness of this Brooklyn based quartet. They have amazing hooks, fun lyrics and Coco, as the tremendous frontwoman and keyboardist, a true rocker chick. Think of Debbie Harry and Axl Roseâ€™s love child singing punk in high heels. Rounded out by the extremely talented Paul on bass, Eddie on drums and Culley on guitars, they rock with reckless abandon. Songs, such as their hit Dead Sea Rolls, are a dying breed. The stunning melodies and achingly fierce vocals dare you to take Coco up on her offer to Gimmee a go! While the EP is spectacular, they truly excel at live performances. Nothing tops seeing Coco jump around onstage in purple suede pumps and a babydoll dress while singing back and forth with her gentlemen. The music is raw, the band members are true musicians and the shows are magnificent. They are on the rise, and should not be missed, under any circumstance.”
“The current four-piece lineup is tight, intense, and impossible to walk away from. Their grooves are Pantera-tight, fronted by powerhouse vocalist CoCo who effortlessly carries her punk lyrics through the glorious racket behind her. Bassist Paul has the super-wide stage stance of Joe Strummer, and provides some sweet harmonies to pull the punk towards pop. Drummer Eddie is a maniac, beating on a crash cymbal that sounds like a trash can lid, yet actually controlling the intricate onstage rhythm party. The band’s secret weapon is guitarist Culley, who hides out in the corner and throws in a few vocals now and then but is clearly the bandleader – and he cleverly saves his rave-up solo for the very end of the set.”

“Brooklyn band the Future in Plastics are bringing back lady-fronted rock in the most wonderful way possible. Lead singer Coco exudes what it would be like to see Bettie Page singing 80s punk. The music is raw and scratches you in all the right places, and the show these guys put on is nothing short of a ruckus; you can see the sweat flying in all directions.”
