Music has the power to bring us together, connecting people from different cultures, nationalities and walks of life. It did just that when a band from London made a journey to share their songs and their story with the music explorers of Birmingham.
That band was Plastic Barricades, our first “Songs in the Sky” champions.
“Songs in the Sky” was an amazing evening of sharing new music with like-minded souls and we are excited to bring you our first video content from the event!
Filmed in the Staying Cool penthouse at the Rotunda, watch the Plastic Barricades boys reference music being a labour of love, their journey so far, their experience of Songwall and why now is a great time to be creating music!
Keep your eyes peeled for live footage of the event coming soon….

In addition and for a bit of musical history, check out the song ‘Labour of Love’ by Hue and Cry, a pop duo formed in 1983. Their second single and biggest hit was “Labour of Love” from the debut album Seduced and Abandoned. Other hits included “Looking for Linda” and “Violently (Your Words Hit Me)” – both from their second album Remote.
