‘Good Face’ is the new EP from PolyGlove which finds the duo channelling sounds from old school raves to dystopian Sci-Fi futures. At first the EP explores the darker side of these future visions but as the record progresses it harps back to a brighter optimistic past, a time before the world became so self aware.

Following on from their last release ‘Leisureplex’ the duo aimed for a grittier and more aggressive sound which was achieved thanks to the re-collaboration with mixing engineer Rían Trench (Leo Drezden, Solar Bears, Panikatax).

The EP also features a remix of ‚Good Face‘ from Rain (Oisín McGovern). The mix hones in on the original songs grit while also introducing trippy syncopation to the rhythm section and atmospheric delays creating a dizzying merky terrain verging into a harder sounding Kraftwerk circa ‘Electric Cafe’.

Artist Quote – „PolyGlove remarking on EP – “In contrast to some of our recent releases our focus was for a brighter sonic palate, centering production around analog tape delays and endless reverbs, prioritising our poly synths, keeping atmosphere at the focal point and opening up the sound for a richer melodic experience.”

Oisín McGovern of ‚Rain‘ remarking on Good Face remix – “I suppose it was inspired by a lot of more dance floor orientated crunchy electro I was listening to at the time. Got big into how saturating the whole drum bus seemed to do something gnarly to all the transients and made my willy tingle”
