London-based Polaroid 85 combine haunting vocals, deep bass, intricate orchestral layers and glitchy samples to create downtempo, cinematic music. Their soulful, piano-led compositions are infused with elements of jazz, drum’n’bass, dubstep, broken-beat, world, classical and folk music, taking the listener on a varied sonic journey.
Since the digital self-release of ‘Fuzzy Mornings’ EP in March 2011, the band have gone from strength to strength impressing audiences around London with their captivating and individual live sound. Attracting the attention of various labels, publisher and promoters, Polaroid 85 have a bright future ahead of them. Fresh from supporting Hidden Orchestra (Tru Thoughts) at a sell out show at London’s XOYO this May, they will now be appearing alongside Trojan Soundsystem, DJ Vadim, Anchorsong and Ruby Wood (Bonobo + Submotion Orchestra) in June. This summer will also see the release of their highly anticipated second EP and appearances at this year’s Beach Break Live and Limetree Festival.
