Polo on Monday 28th October 2019
Yorkshire outfit Polo might hail from Leeds, but the band's glacial atmospherics and lush, r'n'b-tinged pop are an ethereal world away from the spit'n'sawdust DIY scene that the city's best known for.
After receiving the coveted PRS 'Women Make Music' grant, Polo released their debut EP, 'Alice', in March, 2017. Following this, the trio received high profile coverage from the likes of Noisey, Wonderland, Stereogum, DIY and Clash, as well as multiple BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 6 plays, XFM play-listing and Amazing Radio play-listing. That year, Polo completed their first UK tour, selling out small venues across the country.
Throughout 2018, Polo have continued to push their niche of affective, dappled synth pop with their most recent single 'Louder Than Words'. The single propelled Polo to further recognition and affirmed their growing abilities as songwriters of clout even without the extra playful, plinking synth splashes. The track excelled an already impressive festival season, announcing performances at key festivals such as The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, Hit the North, Evolution Emerging, Tramlines and The Great Exhibition of the North. This was complemented by the bands largest and most successful tour to date, a string of Radio 6 plays and the announcement that they will be funded by PRS a second time, proving once again that 2018 is their year.
Wonderland - 'the [trio] specialise in a vaguely RnB inspired sound that marries crisp, intelligent production with a lyrical edge and, of course, McHugh’s strong vocals.'
Indie Shuffle - 'Sexy indie electronica that gives the East Coast USA a run for it's money'
CLASH - 'glistening gossamer pop'
Music Genres: Alternative, Electro, Indie, Pop, R&B
