POLOSHIRT: Self-titled debut EP

Live production duo, Polographia and singer/rapper/multi-instrumentalist, Winston Surfshirt have collaborated to create an electronic seven track that will have you dancing around within the first five seconds.
Blending together tones of soul, funk and hip-hop through a constant underline of electronic and pop, this album is sophisticated, clean and sexily smooth. Opening track, ‘Ima Give Em (feat. Nasty mars)’ showcases synthy rap, which moves into more pop, dance sounds through the next two tracks.

‘Basic’ has sounds bringing your mind straight into the club, decorated with dreamy synths and moving rap. ‘Pinned Upon’, which was released earlier as a single, reminds me of Connan Mockasin mixed with jungle to create some sort of poppy reverie.
As a whole, the album has a great deal of diversity but nonetheless, each track showcases smooth dance beats and summery natures to give you the perfect balance of party and relaxo.
