Introducing Polythought and their first single ‘Alone’ + showcasing at Bigsound Festival 2019

August 28 2019

Polythought is the new electronic act made up of Oliver Tank and producer Vinay Matta (Hansaa). Meeting in Sydney and connecting on their shared taste, Polythought create innovative art pop based in sound design and texture. ‘Alone‘ is their debut release. Listen HERE, watch HERE.

Tank and Matta pride themselves on “creating an experience that is more impactful than music and trying to influence culture.” Together they make music full of depth, introspection and emotion, enhanced by strong visual components for fans of RÜFÜS DU SOL and Washed Out.

Inspired by Nicholas JaarShlomo and Boards of Canada, the two are grounded in the process of organic instrumentation and building expansive landscapes. Their debut single was written in Flume‘s studio in Artarmon, made out of playful improv and amplifying an autotune pedal. With enough experimentation, the autotune of Tank’s lyrics reached full distortion in the chorus and ‘Alone was born.

Tank and Matta have spent the last six months writing the debut Polythought mixtape Retrospect, and have just been announced to showcase at this year’s Bigsound. The two are only just scratching at the surface of their true potential.

‘Alone’ by Polythought is out now, buy/stream it here.
