About Back and Forth

We wrote Back and Forth to reflect the delicate dance of conflicting interest in the face of severe crisis. Despite sounding deceptively light and effortless, composing this piece was actually quite the challenge for us. We had to send it back and forth between our two studios many times to refine the statement.

Rising ambient duo Psycho & Plastic will be releasing their latest single, ‘Back And Forth’ on the 20th of May via GiveUsYourGold. The single follows the recent release of ‘Imago’, both of which will appear on the duo’s upcoming LP Phantom Bliss. The pair have already earned over 4 million plays across platforms with support from Faze Magazine, Electronic Groove, Data Transmission, The Clubmap, Getintothis, and BBC Radio 6’s Andrew Weatherall to name a few. Psycho & Plastic is comprised of Alexandre Decoupigny and Thomas Tichai who have been creating music together over 10 years. The two are from Southern Germany, have both lived in Liverpool where they met and are now based in Berlin. Over the years, the duo have released three albums together as well as two EPs as they draw upon the works of Mouse on Mars, Kruder and Dorfmeister, Leftfield, Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, Robot Koch, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for inspiration. Their own sound calls to mind the likes of Brian Eno, Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm.

“The duo left thumping rhythms back in a world that had stopped and they used ambience to tap into emotion. Less drone-based and more melodically arranged(…), their own personal response to the situation reminds me, in its gaping beat-less synth melancholia, of Tangerine Dream.” –
