When asked in a recent interview why he moved from Tallahassee to New
York, Sean Earl Beard of Plastic Flowers replied, "My choice was to get
comfortable or get out. And I can never get comfortable." Bittersweet
melodies of alienation, the charms of romantic detachment, the
possibility of coloring one's less-than ideal surroundings with sounds
that dramatize and enhance what might be otherwise too drab to take --
these are the raison d'etre of Plastic Flowers. Beard's story is in
some ways fairly classic--small town boy from an unstable home leaves it
all behind to come make music in the big city. But familiar farmboy
rock and roll imagery dissolves as the picture of a former punk kid from
sunny Florida transplanted to overcast Brooklyn making clever yet
heartfelt electronic pop comes into focus. The Strange Neighbors 7" includes three tracks that appropriately showcase Beard's knack for
song craft--the title track, "Strange Neighbors" and "She Learned the
Best Way"--as well has his talent for facilitating escapism through lush
melodic compositions like the instrumental "Serious Pleasures", which
begs to invade the headphones of a lonely dreamers' walk home on an
Autumn night after parting ways with an unrequited crush. The digital
version of the 7" comes with an alternate b-side bonus track.
