On tonight's show: Polarized Eyes, HotWax and ĠENN
Polarized Eyes @polarized.eyes
Polarized Eyes gained national airplay with their first release, Storm, on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape on 6Music when they were just 14 and 15. Subsequent tracks have gained stellar reviews and radio play. Their most recent releases 'Blackout' in December 2020 and 'Real Boys' in March 2021 have been played on Radio X, BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing Beds, Bucks and Herts and Amazing Radio.
Deep in the South Coast of England.
Refreshingly inspired by No One…a BIG sound exudes from an uber young power trio known as HOTWAX.
Moody vocals and deep instrumental weavings through psych rock to funk, they know their stuff and delivered it with a strong effortless presence.
Woeful songs of teenage angst, songs of ferocious Love, songs so beautifully innocent yet so poignant with an energy inspired by “Life”… Albertine, PJ Harvey, even Karen O would for sure… give ‘em the nod.
Making music way beyond their years Hot Wax are refreshingly NOT like anything else.
Four-piece ĠENN (pronounced Jenn) kicked off 2021 with the release of singles Feel and Mackerel’s Funky Mission from their newly released EP, Liminal (March 30 via Everything Sucks Music). The band have received consistent support from BBC6 Music, XS Manchester and Amazing Radio, Radio X playlisted both singles released this year and the band had an Isolation session with John Kennedy on April 02.
Should live go ahead as planned, ĠENN are booked to play several tastemaker festivals including Focus Wales, Kendall Calling, and Loud Women. They have a sold out, socially distanced show at MOTH Club in June and were featured in The Great Escape's First Fifty announcement in November 2020, and will be part of this year's online showcase event.
Leona (vox), Janelle (guitar) and Leanne (bass) are originally from Malta and moved to the UK to complete their lineup with drummer Sofia. ĠENN have toured extensively across the UK and Europe, including support for Acid Mothers Temple, Honeyblood and The Orielles.
