[FRESH NEW] Listen to Polarsets "Morning"

Here's a little crunch for your poppy Sunday. Check out the brand-new "Morning" by British alt-pop trio Polarsets that I first alerted you about earlier this year.

Polarsets is the teaming of Rob Howe (vocals/guitar), Mickey Smith (bass/vocals) and James Rudd (drums/vocals) who first released "Morning" months ago, but are now getting a nice little push with the help of Neon Gold that will be releasing the track early September.

Like I wrote before, Polarsets' clubby sound is heavily influenced by a trip the three Newcastle friends took to Ibiza where they were "thrown into a hazy world of dance beats and observed the power of immersive, communal music." Combine that with their love for Gwen Stefani and The Pixies, and what you get is unorthodox brew of pop that combines glowing synths, vivid melodies and classic indie guitar lines.

"Morning" is an arresting mix of Latin percussion with euphoric dance and, yes, cowbells, which showcases a soundscape epic enough to suggest that their prog days may not have been entirely wasted. With a release in September, it looks like the glowing days of summer may last well into the fall with the help of this little ditty. Listen to it after the break.
