Grungy riffs, melodic vocals, a proper indie-meets-alt-rock vibe — the new single from POLKER is a winner. ‘Louder By The Sea’ is the Merseyside outfit’s latest stab at piercing further into the realms of the north-west music scene and it’s an accomplished track indeed.
The main takeaway here for me is that it’s a bit of a genre-bending piece. It’s as though Soundgarden supplied the instruments and Fleet Foxes took the helm vocally. This song has a palatable playability that firmly places it on Record Weekly’s new release recommendations for August, too.
