Polar States, ShaSimone and more

polar states wanted to keep things, “super simple, so you feel like you’re watching us rehearse”, on the video for their new single So Much Happened Since You Came.

“We ended up inheriting an old piano that originally belonged to the Wombats, and that opened up a whole new dimension to our songwriting,” singer Paul says of the song itself.

“Suddenly it felt like our sound was falling from the sky. So Much Happened Since You Came is the first song we wrote on it. I write lyrics on my phone all the time, often in the middle of the night in a foggy state. I sat down at the piano, opened my phone notes and that was it. 5 minutes later it was over.

Samana are streaming Patience from the upcoming album All One Breath.

It is described as “a poem that manifests the speed of motion, the movement of body, mind and spirit”, by the duo of Rebecca Rose Harris and Franklin Mockett, and reflects influences drawn from the time spent in the French countryside.

“The song feels like a confession, a release and a realization, with the words and music paralleling in a dialogue to navigate a journey of transcendence between a two-state pendulum,” they continue.

Based in Leeds Ntantu created the visuals for his new cut All The Smoke.

“My outlook on life has changed over the years,” he says. “Before, we were called ‘young and reckless’. Growing up in Chapeltown, you have to somehow fit in or stand out.

Sha Simone released their new track today, the Suspect OTB Schweet collaboration.

“Schweet is about living in the moment, having a good time because we’re not here forever,” says the Hackney-based artist – who featured on the We’re All Alone in This Together album from Dave.

“The track was so organic to do and quite funny that it was after Suspect and I went to the Potter Payper album screening. Working with Suspect is always on, his energy is always 100 and positive and we We were just going back and forth on the track as you can hear, we didn’t want it to be too structured, just a nice, easy flow.
