Have you heard the silence?
Have you been invaded?
By the solitude of gods
Everyone get closer,
pop into the border,
listen to the big one call!
Have you been awakened?
Or have you been mistaken?
by the authorities of love
Believing in conscience,
taking it for granted,
lost us in this big big Hole.
Have you seen the darkness turn into a spirit howl?
Have you been invaded by solitudes of god?
We have heard the corners of our minds
Dragon Fruit has come for us to find.
Turn on, tune in, drop out! Welcome to Dragonfruit, a new journey designed by Plastic Woods to attract, shock, vibrate and stroke the listener through six songs that explore different genres in a lunatic, cosmic dance. Edited by some of the most important underground national and european alternative rock labels (Spinda Records, The Braves Records, Discos Macarras, Violence in the Veins, Quebranta Records and Gato Encerrado Records), this album becomes an intention statement. Having developed themselves as a band, Plastic Woods redefines its sound and takes a step forward, creating a piece of work that explores new territories in an unique way.
released December 3, 2021
Dragonfruit has been conjured by:
Javier Rubio Arrabal – Drums, percussion
Antonio Pérez Muriel – Bass guitar, multiple arrangements
Jesús de la Torre Sánchez – Guitars, vocal, transverse flute
The chaotic times we are living inspire this three musicians to push their personality as a band. Thought to take the best of each style involved, the album takes the best from each planetary system they visit. Classic psychedelia renovates itself as Dragonfruit travels around some of the extreme situations lived, personally and colectively, on these late times. This is an album that brings both dreams and nightmares to life, reflecting on a wide range of emotions and topics. Ranging from naive and introspection to political and social complaint, each song tells its own story, in a delirious an poethic way. Plastic Woods offers a piece of work that will engage with different kind of audiences, no matter if they are into progressive music or want something different to get their ears on. This album is a puzzle to be solved, and every clue, every listen, makes it wider and more profound.
Dragonfruit comes out on December 3th, on vinyl edition, digipack and digital platforms.

No sophomore jinx here: the songwriting, performances and production are even richer and more nuanced than on their excellent heavy-psych debut, with the band expanding its soundstage to embrace and seamlessly blend elements of space-rock, jazz-rock, '70's prog, and traditional Galician folk music. This is an album that arrived with high expectations, and surpassed them all. neu-mann
