Writer's block is something everpresent in all forms of art. Especially in music, as you often risk alienating old fans by trying to reach a new audience, or in the case of Texas-based indie-rock outfit The Polarity, feel like you can't meet your own standards from previous works.
“So I’ve really had a hard time writing music ever since our last album took off. Every time I put together a song I always thought, ‘This isn’t good enough.’ I had to go back to the mindset of making music for fun and not trying to please people.”
The result is Skinny Jeans, where they achieve their goal of injecting a healthy amount of fun into their songwriting and its impact is abundantly clear. A stadium-sized indie-rock swagger seamlessly exudes from the quartet on their first single of the year. Tune in below.
