Polyenso Premieres Dazzling Psych-Rock Album 'Pure in the Plastic': Listen

Polyenso 2016
James Lano


Fans of Alt-J and Glass Animals take notice -- Polyenso are here with a new album filled with hypnotic vocals and ripe-for-remix rhythms likely to tickle your fancy. 

The Floridian trio debuted in 2013 with a well-received album called One Big Particular Loop and now they’re back with a sophomore album that pushes them even further into the stratosphere. The new ten-song set is called Pure in the Plastic and it’s due April 1 via Dog Radio/Tone Tree Music. We’re excited to share an advance stream, exclusively via Billboard.

Polyneso call their sound “urban indie progressive” and cite open-minded sound collagists like Flying Lotus, J Dilla, James Blake, and Q-Tip as influences. They also sound like the sort of band whose members found particular inspiration way back when Radiohead’s electronic reinvention on Kid A sought to push the boundaries of what soundscapes a rock band could explore. There’s a lot of earbud candy to sink into.

Newcomers can start with “Osaka Son,” a tender, almost spiritual slow jam with its DNA rooted in the bare Auto-Tune of Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek.” But really, the album is a deeply satisfying listen all the way through, warranting repeat listens to explore the many layers of Jason Pennock’s production. Check it out below.
