With the video, the multi-instrumentalists and producer duo Hermitude share the full details of their upcoming album Pollyanarchy (out September 27 via Nettwerk Records/Elefant Traks).
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, Bibi Bourelly, Haiku Hands, Hoodlem, Wes Period, Soaky Sirens, Vory, and Electric Fields, in addition to the aforementioned BJ The Chicago Kid and Buddy.
In and amongst the eleven tracks, 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.
