POLOSHIRT is the collaboration you've been waiting for; the coming together of singer/rapper/multi-instrumentalist Winston Surfshirt and live production duo Polographia. The joint project is the culmination of years of friendship and late night studio blazes. This musical alliance is set to fuse together and highlight Winston’s unique blend of funk, soul and hip hop and Polographia’s timeless approach to electronic pop. With influences ranging from 70's slow jams to 8-bit anime, POLOSHIRT is a familiar sound with a modern approach ready to be served. With a full EP in the works for later this year featuring a slew of local talent, POLOSHIRT announce the release of their collaborative debut single ‘Pinned Upon’ - and is every bit as smooth and tasty as could be expected from this fresh trio.
Mok explains, “I met Winston over 2 years ago and had him feature on a song called ‘Sly’. We instantly had a musical connection and inadvertently continued working on music together. ‘Pinned Upon’ was one of the last songs we wrote together. It’s a song about everlasting love and one of the warmest songs we’ve done together”
POLOSHIRT has also announced that they'll be going on tour for the very first time in August across Australia. 'The POLOSHIRT TOUR' will be playing all of the new POLOSHIRT tunes from the Upcoming EP, some sneaky Winston Surfshirt & Polographia reworks & a couple of fun covers. Coming along for the ride on select dates will be personal favourites Nasty Mars & Price J who feature on the record, as well as MUTO for Perth only. They'll be bringing along some very special guests Price J Music & Nasty Mars who feature on the record for the ride, as well as MUTO in Perth.
On stage, POLOSHIRT bridges the gap between cartoon and reality through visuals and fashion, truly delivering a feast for the eyes. After unveiling their live show at Curve Ball as part of Sydney's VIVID festival, and before taking the stage at Listen Out in September, we can't wait to share the POLOSHIRT live experience with you. Witness the unmissable POLOSHIRT and their debut self-titled EP live this August.
‘Pinned Upon’ is out everywhere on Tuesday 12th June on Sweat It Out.
