The Giant by Polaroid Summer
Here’s a great new track for your ears, it comes to us from Houston-based indie alt-pop band Polaroid Summer called “The Giant,” and it just so happens to be their debut single.
Polaroid Summer is the combined talents of two well known Houston bands, Lost Element and Versecity. Polaroid summer is comprised of lead vocalist Micaiah Walker (formerly of Versevcity) and former Lost Element members drummer Brian Barrett, guitarist Trace Sisson, and bassist Kenneth Conlon. After years of touring, writing, and tirelessly supporting their previous projects, both bands decided it was time to for a fresh start. The guys from Lost Element were introduced to Walker through a manager they had both previously worked with. They played a string of shows together in the Fall of 2016 where Walker filled in for former Lost Element lead singer, Omar Lopez. It was there that things really started to gel between the former Lost Element members and Walker. It didn’t take long before they started writing and forming the new project, Polaroid Summer. They spent the winter of 2016 at Mix star studios in Virginia Beach, VA with Producer Bryce Bordone, the nephew of 11 time Grammy award winner, Serban Ghenea. After writing and working with Bryce, the group quickly developed their new age alt pop sound that gives them cross genre appeal. Channeling both electronic and organic elements combine with big propulsive beats, catchy guitar licks in resemblance to the 1975, and hook driven lead vocals gives them a lavishly layered sound appealing to mass audiences. Delivering hook after hook, the bands debut EP features everything from powerful message songs like “The Giant” to heart felt emotionally centered tracks about loss and healing like “Feeling Connected” all the way to millennial generation sing along anthems like “American Gold.”
