After high school he taught himself to play piano and guitar, and whilst at college he released numerous bedroom pop-influenced EP’s and singles that have been praised for their DIY ethics. Striving over total creative control and experimentation, Plastic Flowers introduces himself through his multi-textured version of Dream Pop with ethereal synthesisers and jungle guitars, structured around laid-back vocal melodies and complimented by lush soundscapes. The rhythmic driving power behind his sound though, lies in the counterpoint between an elaborate mixture of pumping acoustic beats and electronic bass. Samaras’ nostalgia for the analog warmth and bedroom aesthetics can be heard throughout his discography as he is recording and engineering his material exclusively on tape at home.
Plastic Flowers has toured Europe and USA extensively in the past four years and shared the stage with a number of popular artists such as Bonobo, Paul Kalkbrenner, A.R.Kane, Still Corners and many others.
