Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Pola is an electronic pop duo from Switzerland

Pola are simply blessed with the unpretentious ability to hit the brakes at the last pit-stop before the electro-highway begins and to cast a perky yet piercing glance at the electronic happenings of today – resulting in an album that led the two protagonists to simultaneously exclaim in excitement and awe: “Oh My God What Have I Done!” After their successfull and well recived debut-album from autum ‘05, Pola have taken things further with the new album, release in march 07. Pola haven’t exactly been lacking excitement of late. The tour to go with their debut-album that was simply entitled “Pola” (2005) brought Oli Kuster (Mich Gerber, ex-Züri West) and Marcel Blatti (ex-Felka, Mãozinha) as far as Berlin and to the MIDEM in Cannes. The unmistakable pros of the Berlin-based DJ-collective Jazzanova discovered the electro-troubadours from Berne and commissioned their dreamy ballade “Circles” for the compilation “Secret Love 3” (Sonar Kollektiv). while you would normally have to buy an entire record collection in order to extract such a varied bouquet of splendid tracks, a single Pola album that sounds like a summit between Tunng, DFA and Warp is enough. More summer, more energy, disco-, folk-, and newsoul-elements. And the moments for which the duo is known – and loved – aren’t missing either: reminiscences of the electro-pop eighties, the slightly awry crankiness and playfulness, catchy tunes that will bore themselves under even the thickest of skins and – between many bright, bacchanal and breezy moments – melancholic synthesizer submersion.
