The keen reader might remember discovering British eclectic outfit PolSky. Writing about their previous release ‘Halcyon Daze’, we proudly declared: “Young, exuberant and boasting perfect musicianship, the group is really on the verge of something big: will they be able to grab it?”. Now, the group returns with a mellow and reflective offering, the ballad-powered introspective gem ‘Song for the Silver Surfer’.
Drawing upon a wealth of experience in the independent music scene, Kris Warren, – PolSky’s founder and frontman – has crafted a sound that is both timeless and progressive. That’s particularly relevant in ‘Song for the Silver Surfer’ a true classic prop throwback showcasing Warren’s vocal prowess and his ability to connect with listeners. Personally, we appreciate the Beatle-Esque orchestral arrangement, expanding the magnitude of PolSky’s artistry towards a global and glorious sound. Leaving guitars behind, the band focuses on heartwrenching piano, strings sections and choral vocals.
The results are wonderful, signalling the growth of a group that’s clearly talented and very relevant. Lyrically, ‘Song for the SIlver Surfer’ ask a simple question: how will we date when we are older? How will we deal with age? We don’t know that yet, but one thing we can tell you is: we’ll be still listening to Polsky.
