Plastic Waves is the moniker of NYC based musician Andre Bellido, a South Florida native born to Latin American immigrants.
His family instilled in him a deep love of music, with his father playing música criolla with friends at family gatherings, as well as putting on disco, soul, and 60s & 70s pop records. His grandmother, a French native, introduced him to chanson classics and put him in an after-school music program for guitar at a young age. After playing in bands throughout high school and early college, Plastic Waves finally began in 2014 as a solo project focusing on psychedelic production, incorporating anything from pop melodies to dense, dreamy sounds and noisy textures. From a psych pop start, early influences have begun to make their way into the music, like disco and 80s synth pop. The project is intended to be a personal expression, as well as a limitless exploration of any musical genre or visual style of interest with each new release.
