Listen: Christine by Polecat
Christine by Polecat.
Today, we’ve got a new track to share with you called “Christine,” which comes to us from Bellingham, WA-based indie Americana stomp-grass band, Polecat. “Christine” appears on their new release, Into The Wind, out now.
The members of Polecat arrived at their first rehearsal from very different musical backgrounds.
“Some of us shook hands for the first time that day,” says band leader and vocalist Aaron Guest of the initial meeting in early 2010. Incorporating multiple genres that not only include the above, but also world, country, and reggae into a cohesive sound might have been impossible if each member of Polecat hadn’t learned the rules before breaking them. The group is well-seasoned, having performed nearly 100 shows a year since its inception, but at that first meeting, Polecat didn’t even have a name.
In the five years that followed Polecat released two full-length albums and has seen consistent growth throughout the Northwest as each band member’s musical diversity allowed them to chameleon through an incredible variety of gigs and audiences.
After hearing this track, I can tell you that Polecat has a new fan in me. With a little of this, and a little of that, Polecat delivers!
