Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Polemics. I discovered this Duo while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their unique style.
A beautiful energetic and rhythmic sound that immediately took possession of my nervous system that started to send electrical impulses to the whole body and my limbs began to move in time with the music.
An irreverent and sincere sound that has distant influences and that is inspired by bands of the past.
I heard a bit of 90s vibes, but at the same time, they manage to be modern.
The Beastie Boys who meet the Prodigy, these are the bands that came to my mind listening to the music of this duo.
The chord progression is never predictable and banal and amazes for the inclusion of rocking guitar solos.
A beautiful discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Captain is Polemics’ Single Out Now!
Sincere and Unique!
Hailing from Bristol, Polemics are Nathan Smith and Jeff Ingle, school friends united by a passion for heavy music, they officially formed in 2019 and after a series of ferocious live shows they established themselves as an exciting emerging fixture of the Bristol live scene.
Polemics deftly combine their natural edge, attitude and fury with skilled musicianship and hugely bombastic drums. The elements of hardcore and angry vocals are matched with songwriting, chunky riffs and a pop sensibility. They are naming The Mars Volta and Smashing Pumpkins as big influences whereas blogs and fans are calling comparisons with IDLES, Fugazi and Primus.
