Polo

The Joe Strummer Foundation
Strummerville

9:30pm - 10:00pm (Friday)


Yorkshire outfit Polo might hail from Leeds, but the band's glacial atmospherics and lush, r'n'b-tinged pop are an ethereal world away from the spit'n'sawdust DIY scene that the city's best known for.

'Polo's music sits far away from their Yorkshire based roots. I get that sounds strange, but when you consider the counties most famous exports are the Kaiser Chiefs, the Cribs, and Alt-J it's both a good thing and a welcome refreshment to see a group from that side of the country put down the bits'n'bobs of do-it-your-self-indie and strive for something more complete, more wholesome.'
