consistency and individuality eventually yields liberty.

taking on a portishead track is no small task. do you stay true to the band's vision or rework the song to personify your own musical vision? local trio pollyn have taken the classic track, "mysterons" and substituted it's natural haunting quality with a unexpected collage of upbeat instrumentation. the new vibe still sits well, especially over some colored flashlights battling a dark backdrop.

"mysterons" is the b-side to the previously featured "how small are we".

pollyn's sophomore record, living in patterns, is due october 4th.
