Pollyn – “Distress Signals”

Pollyn have been together since roughly 1998, and “Distress Signals” is their third studio album. Compared to their previous releases, this album is a lot darker and electronic. A lot of the cuts on this album swoon over a moody, bass-charged ambient beat that amplifies the overall darkness of the record. The synths are very high energy, the vocals are layered rather nicely, and the drumbeats are vintage. Overall, this album resonates as a stunning and ethereal release with a lot of folksy psychedelic undertones, and it is a stunning testament to the bands eclectic influences throughout the years.
