2. Running Out Of Ideas
The band's first self-release, the 'Loose Tongues EP', showcased their vivid blend of fiery indie guitar-rock and melodic punk-pop, gaining media interest and radio airplay in the North West and abroad. The new 'Running Out Of Ideas EP' sounds at once both fashionably retro and unpretentiously modern. This is a new breed of youthful power-punk-pop from the urban bohemian sprawl of south Manchester - big, bright, dynamic music that defies influence, and doesn't need a set of matching skinny ties to look and sound stylish.
The band started life two years ago as a two-piece playing Krautrock-influenced experimental music. In 2004, Dylan and Yuri took a break from a grim northern winter to spend time in Devon, where they discovered a love of melody and a hectic drummer, Tim, who dismissed their early work as 'heroin music'. Denny returned from living in Berlin to join the group earlier this year, and POLYTECHNIC was born as a four-piece. Thankfully, the odd shades of angst and gloom still lurk beneath the sparkly surface.
