“New Wave Jacket/My Sharona” October 4th
Following their triumphant sell out July tour of the UK, Tokyo’s Polysics are set to once again return to these shores. Armed with the musical cluster bomb that is their new double A-side single “New Wave Jacket/My Sharona” released October 4th, Polysics will play their biggest tour yet of the UK this September. So stock up on tinned food and sand bags.

The band’s debut UK release ‘Polysics Or Die’ found many delighting in the band’s totally unique, atom-smashing, futurist new wave sound; “surprisingly ace… bursts out with jubilant freshness and is jammed with ultra-pop details and heroic hooks” said Q, “so refreshing that they rise above any scene, retro or otherwise 4/5″ said The Times. The band’s single ‘Kaja Kaja Goo’ won fans in Radio 1’s Mary Ann Hobbs and John Peel (look out for a Peel session coming next month) the promo clip for which has also been on rotation at MTV2. Meanwhile the full force of Polysics was unleashed at their sold out show at London’s ICA resulting in the inevitable, “Forty minutes of this nuclear punk insanity makes NME’s brain bleed” NME.
Mysterious forces were at play on the band’s last tour as is often the case with Polysics, Kayo’s Pom Poms mysteriously disappeared prior to the Birmingham Academy show, thus depriving her of her Pom Pom solo during ‘Peach Pie On The Beach’. If these Gold Pom Poms are spotted, please report immediately to www.polysics.com. Is it coincidence that only a week after Polysics visit these shores, there is an almost biblical flood at the height of the British summer on the streets of London?
Polysics play the following dates. Their double a-side single ‘New Wave Jacket/My Sharona’ will be released October 4th on Sur La Plage Records.

“We’ve become accustomed to Japanese bands having a somewhat bizarre take on western rock and pop by now, but even so Polysics are a shock to the system” Independent On Sunday 5/5
