Nous voilà dorénavant rassurés sur le devenir du rock espagnol : avec POLOCK on tient sans aucun doute une future référence indie pop. Ces 5 jeunes hommes ont été éduqués par les Strokes et l’electro pop de Friendly Fire. En ressort ce premier single « Fireworks », une summer pop mélodique qui n’a rien à envier aux Versaillais de Phoenix !

Getting down from the trees


Debut Album Getting Down From The Trees:  April

Polock are: Papu (vocals, guitar) Pablo (guitar), Alberto (keyboards),
Sebas (bass) & Marc (drums).

Polock hail from Valencia, Spain and are following in the footsteps of
beloved Euro-bands like Phoenix, destroying the default assumption
that young, exciting and effortlessly cool bands are home-grown or hail
from across the pond – Westside that is.

Polock are five young men making music The Stokes would’ve
made, had their blend of garage rock story-telling been written under
the Spanish sun and a giant disco ball; laced with sparkling Friendly
Fires-esque electronica, a sound so alive in Polock’s audio Catherine
Wheel of a debut single ‘Fireworks’: spinning, sparkling and building
with every second. Then there are the songs built on such solid,
accomplished song-writing – ‘Sometimes’ and ‘Not So Well’ (to name
a few) – that they could’ve been written by critically acclaimed veterans
Modest Mouse or Spoon. Songs that grab from the opening riff,
floating into sublime melodies, keeping you hooked from start to finish
and sounding like a classic track yet shimmering with brand-spanking
and exciting newness simultaneously.

Though on reflection living in the yearly walkway to the baking hot,
bohemian eclecticism that is Benicassim Festival would explain
Polock’s melting pot of sounds; the instrumental experimentation
coupled with maturity in their sound, at odds with a band so in their
infancy. A sound born from a place where music is a thing to be taken
seriously, but also with an abundance of passion and fun.

For this is what Polock bring: it all. A debut album from five musicians
whose talent screams longevity, while, simultaneously, their distinctive
playful sound – delivered with their youthful exuberance and artistic
flair - yells even louder: ‘This is where it is. Right here. Right now’.

Polock’s debut album ‘Getting Down From The Trees’ is released on
11th April. The album is preceded by single ‘Fireworks’ released on
21st March. ‘Fireworks’ includes two remixes from by Lo-Fi-Fnk and
Eim Ick. The artwork for both releases are courtesy of friend-of-the-
band and renowned Spanish artist Carla Fuentes, brought in to make
sure Polock’s artwork is as distinctive as their music. Both are out on
Mushroom Pillow Records.
