Stream Polarsets’ Exotica EP

May 03, 2012


Now that summer's approach is pushing the sun higher in the sky, breezy new music is on the way from Polarsets, the Newcastle trio with a memorable vocalist and fairly short discography, including their incredible debut single, "Sunshine Eyes," for Kitsuné last spring and a whirling recent collaboration with Unicorn Kid. "Tropics," whose video is above, opens the band's forthcoming Exotica EP with beachside marimba, muted guitar and a story of time-busting young romance full of special necklaces and waterfalls. It's pretty music for coconut drinks, positive-sounding but with a scary fragility that's hard to pin down, hinted most directly on "Distance," a breakup song with an unconvincing time heals any wounds chorus. The full release is streaming below, out June 18th via Euphonios.
