Chicago-based electronic/darkwave act Black Plastic premieres its newest videoclip ‘Halcyon’ today. Black Plastic is the musical project of visual artist Kevin Grady, with the material mixed and produced by Casey Desmond.
Grady is perhaps best known as the founder of Lemon, an award-winning pop art magazine with a broad cult following. Lavishly produced and designed, the magazine has hosted a range of impressive contributors, including David Bowie, Daft Punk, Jeff Koons, Sonic Youth and many others.
‘Halcyon’ was written by Kevin Grady, mixed and produced by Casey Desmond. Dark, moody and mostly electronic, Black Plastic gives a modern, danceable twist to the dark wave genre. “It’s club music for vampires!” says Grady. Well, that’s something for you to find out!
The video was directed and edited by Łukasz Pytlik.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
