Plastic Toy releases music video for debut single on DJ Snake’s label
By Bandook - April 3, 2019
Rising French artist Plastic Toy and DJ/producer and label boss DJ Snake have just released the official music video for their brand-new debut single ‘Try Me’, a slick mid-tempo production out on Snake’s Premiere Classe label.
The official music video is shot by Bali-based creative content agency Moonkey Creative – who has previously produced content for Mercer, Potato Head and Socialister.
With the video following the melodic chill-wave symphony of the track, the cinematic video shows a surreal version of a relationship cycle that takes place through the perspectives of two toy dolls.
From the pair’s initial meeting to the depiction of date nights and other more intimate scenarios, we are left with the couple showing consideration over another pill before the male character is left alone.
Plastic Toy explains: “With the music video for Try Me, we wanted to tell a story that would reflect the emotional feeling of the track. The reason why Moonkey chose to tell it with toys is kind of obvious, but they managed to give them life and the emotions we were looking for, the end scene of the birds flying in the sky is probably my favourite part.”
Growing up in the suburbs of Paris, Plastic Toy’s fascination with music was kick-started when learning the drums at the age of 14. The French producer soon started to create his own electronic sounds, using a keyboard and the first software demo he found to craft his colourful and melodic style.
With the producer’s powerful signature sound made up of rhythmic tones with a contemporary twist; it was this particular attribute which caught the ear of Grammy-nominated DJ and producer DJ Snake.
The release follows a string of recent releases on the imprint from artists such as Chace and Pardon My French superstar Mercer.
Plastic Toy & DJ Snake’s Try Me is available on the album Premiere Classe – The Beginning released exclusively on 9122 Records.>
