POLO SHARE “GOLD HORIZONS” VIDEO VIA DIY
UK TOUR STARTS NEXT WEEK; DEBUT EP ALICE OUT NOW
POLO are set to tour next week in support of their debut EP Alice . To celebrate, they’ve shared the video for lead single “Gold Horizons” via DIY who said “the trio’s knack for a heartbreak banger is undoubted.”
Gloriously lo-fi, the video is essentially a tour diary showing the band during downtime on their recent February jaunt.
“We focussed on all the detail in between the shows: the four hour drives, and the days off we spent at the arcade.”
says founder member Luke Lount.
“With the “Gold Horizons” film we set out to create a personal feeling POV style video filmed from inside the band but looking outward, showing life in Polo on tour,” adds director Niall Lea.
Polo, comprising Lount, vocalist Kat McHugh and recent addition Daniel Edgell, are influenced by the rich production of Anderson.Paak and the vocal stylings of NAO, Erykah Badu and Amy Winehouse (among others). Alice‘s four tracks embrace spacious, woozy synth sounds and warm, emotive vocals.
Written largely about “the female influences in [McHugh’s] life, romantic or motherly, good or bad,” the Alice EP is as rich, complex and rewarding as the relationships it represents. Give Alice the time and there’s a wonderland among Polo’s sonic spell-weaving to be found.
