Yorkshire trio Polo (formed of vocalist Kat McHugh, Synth man Luke Lount and Drummer Dan Egdell) might hail from Leeds, but the groups glacial atmospherics and lush, r'n'b-tinged pop are an ethereal world away from the spit'n'sawdust DIY scene that the city's best known for.
Formed in 2015, the band released hypnotic, woozily seductive debut single 'Visions Of Fortune' later that year and racked up performances at annual inner-city festivals Live At Leeds, Tramlines and Long Division, as well as supporting the likes of Bipolar Sunshine and Charlotte OC. After receiving the coveted PRS 'Women make Music' grant, Polo released their debut EP, 'Alice' in March 2017 via AWAL.
Noisey - "Polo deliver glass-shattering production and coloured with slashes of sparse and beautiful vocals"*
Wonderland - "the [trio] specialise in a vaguely RnB inspired sound that marries crisp, intelligent production with a lyrical edge and, of course, McHugh’s strong vocals."
Indie Shuffle - "Sexy indie electronica that gives the East Coast USA a run for it's money"
CLASH - "glistening gossamer pop"
