Proven masters of the gripping music video with cinematic mini-epics for recent songs 'Disembody' and 'Day Job', Te Whanganui-a-Tara's Soft Plastics have shared an undeniably pawsome audio-visual release from their long-awaited debut album Saturn Return. Filmed by Charlie the cat with additional footage by Frank the cat, and edited together by Jack Ewing (also on drone duties), the clip for fuzzed-out new anthem 'Darcie' views the capital's leafy suburbs from a feline first-person perspective — both ground level and aerial! You can catch Soft Plastics performing at CubaDupa 2023 just before Saturn Return launches on 31st March, hit play below...

"We wanted our next music video to be a fun, low-stakes video. Laura has an injured leg and is on crutches and I got taken down by Covid this summer. We were brainstorming potential ideas and I jokingly said that we should get some cats to film it for us, like those Tiktok videos of people putting GoPro's on stray cats. The other two thought it was a genius idea so we decided to go for it.

Soft Plastics is definitely a cat loving band. We all have cats for pets so it makes sense for us to have a cat related music video" — Sophie Scott-Maunder

"Once landing on the idea, we decided that my sister’s cat Charlie would be the star of the show. We knew he’d have the confidence and charisma to pull it off. He has child actor energy, with his daily routine consisting of greeting people on the street and following us to the park. After some trial and error, we fitted the GoPro collar to him and let him roam around. His brother Frank helped with some additional footage but didn't have the star power." — Laura Robinson

'Darcie' is out now on major streaming services.
