ginla is Toronto-based duo of producers Joe Manzoli and Jon Nellen. ‘Almost Plastic’ is the premier release off an upcoming EP set for a spring release. The track starts off with a splash of beach waves, and sets up an ambient vibe backed by hazy distorted vocals and groovy electronic beats,  finishing off with some major reverb action and recognizable MGMT-esque keys riff. There is an anonymity around the duo, as there are no pictures available, except a visual loop accompanying the track on the website. With a debut as strong as ‘Almost Plastic’, ginla won’t be a mystery for too long.
