Pure In The Plastic aims to build off of the band’s critically acclaimed 2013 debut release, One Big Particular Loop, and its most recent project, EP1,released back in October of 2015. Polyenso categorizes its genre of music as urban indie progressive with Pure In The Plastic including elements of hip-hop, neo-soul, and experimental electronics. Band members Alex Schultz, Brennan Taulbee, and Denny Agosto have drawn heavy influence from artists such as Flying Lotus, J Dilla, James Blake, and Q-Tip.
“Everyone has a light and a darkness inside them. For us it comes out in our music,” reflects Alex Schultz. “Dichotomy is a huge theme in this record. Head and heart, gluttony and apathy, and love and hate are some of the obvious ones.”
Upcoming performances from Polyenso include a slot during this year’s Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, GA the weekend of May 13-15th. Polyenso will also be in Nashville at The Basement East on January 27th for a free show presented by BMI and Alt 983.
