Sounds | Polyphia, Playing God
Héél leuk nummer om de (werk)week mee te beginnen. Op Playing God laat de band een kruisbestuiving horen tussen nuevo flamenco gitaren, bossa nova flair en ritmes beïnvloedt door trap. Het zorgt bij mij alvast voor een zonnig gevoel.
Genre-bending instrumental band Polyphia are back with their first song since 2019. The track was produced by guitarists Tim Henson & Scott LePage, alongside JUDGE (Migos & Marshmello, blackbear, Young Thug), and features additional production by the band’s longtime collaborator Y2K (Doja Cat, Remi Wolf, Tove Lo), and Johan Lenox (Kanye, FINNEAS). The song was co-written with Wes Hauch (Alluvial).
Since their formation in Plano, Texas in 2010, Polyphia have made a name for themselves by blending intricate guitar riffs with hip-hop rhythms, bass-heavy trap music, and progressive metal & rock influences. To date, the band has released three studio albums - “Muse” (2014), “Renaissance”(2016), “New Levels New Devils” (2018) - as well as, two EPs, and a handful of singles. Their impressive catalog has earned them 300M+ global streams, 90M+ YouTube views, and international acclaim.
