Week Ender – Polartropica

The Omega to the Week Starter Alpha, Week Ender is the song we want to send you swaggering into the weekend with.

If you are currently under the cold thumb of winter storm Landon you probably don’t want to have anything to do with anything else with Polar in the name. Focus instead on the Tropica part of Polartropica and let the colorful fun of “Serial Killer Slayer” melt your skepticism, and perhaps if you crank it up loud enough it just might sonically shovel your driveway for you. Polartropica is the musical project of Los Angeles based artist Ihui Cherise Wu, stitching together a wide array of musical styles to create their own dream world. One song is hyper pop, another is an otherworldly Francophile cabaret number, and yet another is an alternate universe 50’s ballad. Wu is less of a traditional musical artist and more of “what if Meow Wolf was a person.” It’s an everything and the kitchen sink approach that somehow works because of….magic? “Serial Killer Slayer” is a revved up pop leaning garage rocker with equally infectious video to match. I mean who doesn’t love an arcade fighting game theme? Especially one that includes the graphic “EAT MA FRUITY BALLS.” We’d love to see more of this style from Wu in the future, but as they’ve proven so far, not one single style can contain them, and that’s ok too.
