Hidden Gem: Polaris At Noon *Electronic, Dance, Pop, Rock
I discovered Polaris At Noon original music after attending Bootleg Bar in Los Angeles. Specifically they were the openers to the show, but we missed seeing them perform but did grab their EP, En Pointe (iTunes), on the way out. The next day, I put the CD in my car and was amazed at how awesome and unique their sound is. This Costa Mesa, CA band is led by Jason Suwito, who has guided Polaris at Noon with a sound that seamlessly fuses electronic music with pop/rock. The music has garnered great esteem from fans of The Sounds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MSTRKRFT, and more. Personally I would compare them to a mixture of up-and-comer Capital Cities and Charlotte rock band Paper Tongues. I love all the songs on their 5-track EP, En Pointe and highly recommend purchasing it! So below, stream and download some of the 11 tracks Polaris has uploaded to their soundcloud.
