POLARITY: The presence or manifestation of two opposite or contrasting principles or tendencies. This definition reflects our new EP released in July of 2011. We embrace duality finding inspiration in the uncharted territories and often frightening truths of self found in the human psyche. With the new release we ask patience from our listeners. Our songs allow you a moment to breath and linger in a state of melodic limbo, listen for harmonizing guitars and painfully insecure lyrics. Once you’re comfortable, before you know it you’ll find senses exploding with pounding rhythm, powerful rifts and strong yet vulnerable melodies.
We formed in December of 2008 and released our debut album in October of 2009. Global Entertainment magazine has described our first release as going ‘basement gold’. We’ve proudly sold over 2000 copies independently. 2010 saw us touring for the first time to the East Coast of Canada, and in the three and a half years since our bands birth our motto of ‘every show counts’ is clearly visible from our past show list on our websitewww.polaritymusic.com...we’ve played over a hundred shows in and around the GTA, and have loved every stage and audience in the process. Like most unsigned bands we manage all aspects of our band independently and continue to do so.
Our more recent accomplishments include a sold out show at Toronto’s Tattoo Rock Parlour for our EP’s release, playing in the heart of Toronto at the Younge and Dundas for Youthday and helping raise over $11,000 for breast cancer while playing to an audience of over six hundred people. In the upcoming months you’ll find us in our van touring the country exposing Canadian audiences to our progressive style
POLARITY; The positive or negative state in which a body reacts to a magnetic, electric or other field. This definition sums up all we hope for from our listener, that you give into our moment and allow yourself to feel the magnetic pull of POLARITY, allow the electricity of our instruments to course through your body and embrace the positive or negative reaction you have to the field of music we create.
