POLYPHIA are an incredible band who have a masterful command of melody and rhythm, who fuse together metal sounds and structure with hip hop rhythms and dark and sinister tones – and they do so without the crutch of sing-along vocals. In challenging the generally accepted constant that dark and technical music has to be atonal and un-danceable, the four members of POLYPHIA have done their part to advance the world of instrumental rock in a manner that has seldom been matched in the genre.
On the band’s recently released full-length, New Levels New Devils, POLYPHIA have taken yet another defiant leap forward. The virtuosic guitar work that has defined POLYPHIA is still present, but the band made a conscious effort to replace distorted guitars and epic breakdowns with a soundscape of bass-heavy trap music. The elite cast of collaborators on New Levels New Devils includes producers such as Y2K (Killy, Yung Bans) and Judge (Migos & Marshmello, blackbear, Young Thug). It also includes features from some of the best guitarists in the world – including Jason Richardson, Ichika, Mateus Asato, Yvette Young (of Covet) and Erick Hansel and Mario Camarena (both of CHON). Finally, the lone vocal feature comes courtesy of hip hop phenom – and long time POLYPHIA fan – Cuco, who has captivated tastemakers over the past year with his lyrical prowess and unique style.
The bands touring schedule is packed with dates worldwide through 2021 with a new release coming Fall 2020.
