After a slightly troublesome morning on the wheels of steel (read laptop), our deadly duo struck gold with three brand new(ish) bands to boast and brag about on the Polyphonic Three.
First up we had some fresh Kiwi sounds from The Naked and Famous. Summer anthems, beach parties and big festival dance halls will all strike gold with their killer single Young blood. Crazy cliché sounds that somehow sound sincere will leave you smiling, sweating and dancing with your hands sky bound every time. Classic pop at it’s best, I just wish the weather was better so we could get out there and feel it in all’s in glory. The single can be found entirely free over at Pretty Much Amazing and perhaps never has one song fit so well under their banner. Put it on, and dance yer pants off.
Israel Cannan is a young man on a mission: “I have never wanted to wait around for some elusive big break that may or may not come. There is a whole world of people out there that will connect with what I do, I just have to find them…” And so with that armed with a friend, a video camera and a bunch of songs he set off travelling across this great land to share his music, and his tales with the world. His debut album ‘Walk’ on which he’s written, engineered and played every instrument on is out now through his own label Poets Corner. Rich sounding roots music, melt under Cannan’s mahogany vocals which are as warm as treacle on a smouldering log fire. Load up the combi and head into sunset, this guy’s got your soundtrack. It’s out now in iTunes or though his website for a real copy. Video’s and more of a flavour of what this man’s all about can be found on his YouTube channel. Go be inspired…
If things got too hot for you with Isreal Cannan then you may need to cool off in the pool.. but where is the pool or to put it another way “ou est le swimming pool” Which brings us neatly to our next artist on the Polyphonic Three “Ou Est Le Swimming Pool” (see what we did there?)
This group are a cheeky elcotro-pop style group from Camdan Town, London. They have been making ripples on the UK scene for some time now and became a huge hit on this years festival scene. The band were dealt a sudden blow earlier this year after the lead singer of the group, Charles Haddon committed suicide this August. The debut album “The Golden Year” has been released in his honour and the music shines through as a true testament to his character. It’s available as a stream through Facebook or as a purchase through all of the normal online stores. Check it out.
