Listen: Polographia - Up And Down feat. Goodbye Moon
Sydney-born Polographia gift us Up And Down off their long-awaited Natural EP.
The majority of music editorial in this country is dominated with articles about young producers staking their claim. While I reckon this line of thinking is often over-used, this definitely isn’t the case for Sydney duo Polographia.
I first caught ear of these boys years ago when they released a warped beat piece by the name of Righteous Hit back in 2012. This was followed by the release of a few originals before a hiatus. Later the following year, I caught them warm the stage for none other than SHIGETO in a Sydney basement and they had all-comers stunned. In the back half of 2015, Polographia have returned.
Not long ago, we were gifted the slinky composition Rhythm with vocals from Jordan Parilla (listen HERE), and now we have Up And Down, a track best experienced through headphones. Similar to Rhythm, Polographia have stuck with an authentically digital vibe. Up And Down is founded on a bed of squelchy, insect-enthused clicks and computerised key scales. Layered over the top comes a neat selection of synth arrangement. For me this brings to mind those feathered dreamcatchers that hang in kids' rooms. To be honest I’d heard little of Goodbye Moon as a vocalist but this dude can certainly sing. His drawly vocals bring to mind the likes of Chet Faker and King Krule. The way this track’s sounding I think these two parties will definitely be keeping in touch.
It’s been a long time between drinks but Polographia are well and truly back:
