GET BEHIND THE MASK
Pop Trash Inc. Hailing from The Netherlands, this mysterious Dutch quartet produce and record their own music and visuals.
With their sense for melody and trashy guitar infused Euro synth-pop sound, Pop Trash Inc. reminds of bands like Daft Punk and Garbage.
Pop Trash Inc. are:
‘Andre Szachnowski’ - bass
‘Ronald Abresh’ - guitars
‘Erwin Meerman’ - synthesizers
‘Eva Auad’ - vocals
The band started in 2014. Fueled by a mutual interest in 80’s and 90’s music, they began recording original material. ‘It became clear right away that we had something worthwhile’ says the band. ‘The four of us just clicked and we knew the time was right to bring back that classic sound injected with modern production”.
The band states: “the total image is more important than the individual members” and “by investing in visual appearance Pop Trash Inc. succeeds to differentiate from other bands and stay in the public’s minds”.
The band is very much influenced by cinematics and pop culture . They sure know their classics. The first single ‘Vertigo City’ was inspired by the 1982 cult movie ‘Bladerunner’. The title of their second release ‘Can’t go back to yesterday’ is a phrase from ‘Alice in wonderland’ and the video of ‘SITA’ is a new take on the 80’s teen movie ‘Weird Science’ (in the Pop Trash video the band design their perfect female singer!).
Pop Trash Inc.’s debut EP 1.0 was released in September 2019.
Their new album POP TRASH INC 2.0 is scheduled to be released in October 2021
