“We’re super excited to hear what comes from this Remix comp, we know there’s a huge amount of talent coming out of Asia at the moment whether established artists or bedroom producers. We want to hear it all,”
Lauren Hendry Parsons (AVP Communications & Partnerships, BandLab Technologies) shared this,
“Hermitude’s built an awesome reputation as a band that keeps stretching the limits of their creativity and pushing the envelope. In a shared spirit of sonic experimentation, we’re excited to be providing the platform for this remix competition and inviting musicians from around Asia to take part.”
The album’s name is a reflection on finding clarity in the chaos.
‘Pollyanarchy’ is a record of the time spent to meticulously sculpt, experiment and create a piece of work that skillfully blends a diverse assemblage of features like Vic Mensa, BJ The Chicago Kid, Buddy, Bibi Bourelly, Haiku Hands, Hoodlem, Wes Period, Soaky Sirens, Vory, and Electric Fields.
Hermitude has yet again produced a future-facing album of coherence and variety that showcases a wide range of influences, from late-night R&B to deep pitched basslines and trap-inflected hooks. The list of collaborations notes the distance in which their music has taken them, bending genres and bridging the gap between electronic music and hip-hop.
