Born in early 2018, Plasticine's a music project based in the south of Portugal. The sound of the band reflects several influences, as so, you can hear bites and pieces of jazz, funk, soul, rock, afro-beat, etc. These elements gather themselves in a rhythmic and harmonic diversity, combined with contagious melodies. The band's performances are marked by the creation of different musical ambiances and distinctive dynamics.

On live performances, the band's formation can change but in general it's based on a 9-piece band. The name of the project (Plasticine) it's a reflection of its own concept, that is, a formation with space for malleability, and where the change of musicians, allowing them to give their own emotion and interpretation of the songs, is itself an element of the band's identity, which results on the uniqueness of each concert.

Plasticine's debut took place on the 30th of March, 2018, at Clube Artístico Lacobrigense, Lagos, Portugal, and in September 2019 the first CD was released. To sign the date, a concert was held on the Auditório Solar da Música Nova, in Loulé, Portugal.

Barely one year after it's debut, on March the 29th, Plasticine won a band contest run by Marginália Bar in Portimão, Portugal. Since the beginning of the project, the band's own songs have already been shown live in several occasions, in venues such as, Re-Criativa República, Olhão, MAR Festival 2018 in Lagos and LAC also in Lagos.
