Artist Of The Day: Polyenso

I wrote about Oceana's efforts at using a Kickstarter to fund their latest album back in April, and we're now just starting to hear the results of this funding. However, the band is now going under the name Polyenso, a very valid change due to the enormous change in the band's sound since their early metalcore days. With the release of the first track from the band's upcoming record One Big Particular Loop, the band's transformation is completed. "Dog Radio" takes a lot from Radiohead's music, especially vocally. Vocalist Brennan Taulbee has changed his style immensely, even from the Clean Head days. He works far more in the falsetto, and sometimes sounds almost like a second Thom Yorke. The addition of trumpet in the band's recent live videos was one of the more exciting developments to look forward from this album, and its use on "Dog Radio" is nothing less than stunning. The band has made a complete leap across scenes, and it'll be interesting to see who One Big Particular Loop catches on with. You can stream "Dog Radio" here, and be on the lookout for more music from the band.
