Pollyn have called it a day, they have decided to end it all. They are dead… However like all that die influential, they have a final word or two! ‘Findaway’ Ft. Alexis Taylor’ is the band’s final single brand new, reflective, beautiful and an amazing way to bookmark Pollyn’s life as a band. Originally written in 2016 the band had Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor in mind at the songs inception, so they reached out. He loved the track and added his vocals immediately, leaving us with the irresistible vocal harmony on this version sitting proudly as an example of the influence the band held.
Pollyn were nouveau vintage electronica and were celebrated as one of LA’s most hi-fashion electronic acts. Genevieve Artadi’s porcelain vocal, Anthony Cava’s guitars and Adam Jay Weissman’s beatmaker production make for a potent and unforgettable cocktail. Releasing their first EP in 2003, Pollyn originally sampled from old records to bed their iconic vocal with dark analogue synths, dusty beats built with old hip hop drum machines, an ancient Pro Tools set-up and trippy vocal fx. The edge of cool which drove through everything the band did and the undeniable talent they held allowed them to be admired as your favourite band’s favourite band and led them to work with names from across the music world including Moodymann, Roc Marciano, Mathew Herbert and remixing Gorillaz and Liquid Liquid.
Weissman says of the track: “We wrote ‘Findaway’ last year as we were releasing DISTRESS SIGNALS. we recorded a bunch of songs that were going to be a new non-Pollyn project with guest vocalists. We had Alexis in mind for this track from the very beginning. We are both big fans of Hot Chip and I thought Alexis and Genevieve’s vocals would sound great together, which they do. As we were putting the anthology together ‘Findaway’ sounded like it belonged with the rest of the Pollyn songs, so it ended up on there as the last official Pollyn song.”
‘Findaway Ft. Alexis Taylor’ is included on the upcoming anthology Here Lies Pollyn 2003-2016 – available from 29th September both digitally with a full album of remixes and in a triple vinyl pack via Music! Music Group.
