London-based Polaroid 85 combine haunting vocals, deep bass, intricate orchestral layers and glitchy samples to create downtempo, cinematic music. Their soulful, piano-led compositions are infused with elements of jazz, trip hop, liquid drum’n’bass, broken-beat, world, classical and folk music, taking the listener on a varied sonic journey.
With a captivating and individual live sound, the band have played a number of notable gigs in their time, billed alongside the likes of Hidden Orchestra, Trojan Soundsystem, Anchorsong and DJ Vadim, as well as several festival appearances including Shambala, Green Man, Beach Break Live, Rockness and Kendal Calling.
Reel Me Records, having tracked Polaroid 85 since the release of their free EP ‘Fuzzy Mornings’, are proud to be the home of their ‘Escapist EP’ – the official debut release.
